The Cost (2023)

A voicemail message opens director Matthew Holmes’ film, as Stephanie (Nicole Pastor) leaves a message for her husband apologising for an argument while asking to be picked up from the station. As the recording conveys her sincerity in making up, that hope is drained due to the following sight of Stephanie’s lifeless body. The story then flashes to the present day, as David (Jordan Fraser-Trumble) and Aaron (Damon Hunter) prepare themselves for the coming weekend. Their loved ones are told the pair are going on a camping trip, although the packed items hint at more sinister plans.
