A Banquet Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing

One of the most delicious cinematic feasts you can devour this Halloween comes in the form of A Banquet, Ruth Paxton’s unnerving and ever-timely horror of body image and eating disorders. One of the most striking and assured feature debuts in some time, this sinister and compelling shocker will get under your skin and stay there long after the credits have rolled. Second Sight Films – ever the purveyors of the best cinema – have put together a smorgasbord of delights with another of their celebrated Limited Edition releases.

Synopsis

Widowed mother Holly is pushed to breaking point when her daughter Betsey claims she has experienced a profound enlightenment.
