Corporate Animals

What a great company! It produces edible cutlery, it’s concerned about the environment, and, above all, it cares about its people. Several employees travel to New Mexico for a team-building exercise in the charge of an emotionally unstable boss (Demi Moore), who loves repeating controversial theories such as The biggest muscle in the body is the brain. The trip quickly turns into a nightmare when an earthquake leaves the group trapped inside a cave. The dramatic situation should make them work together, but they start pointing fingers instead, and the company’s worst secrets come to light. And after a few days trapped in the cave, the key question is finally asked: Which one of them should they eat to survive? A provocative mix of very black comedy and survival horror. The director Patrick Brice (Creep) and the screenwriter Sam Bain (Four Lions, the TV series Babylon) are merciless—and they often go beyond the bounds of good taste—in their takedown of contemporary corporations and start-ups. And Demi Moore pokes fun at the role she played years ago in the vaunted thriller Disclosure.
