I missed Relaxer, the story of a guy who can’t get off his couch until he wins some massively difficult video game achievement, at last year’s Fantasia Fest. Luckily Andrew Todd saw the film and reviewed it here (spoiler: he liked it). When I read Andrew’s review, I felt a little bad about not seeing what sounded like an interesting experience. Now that I’ve seen the trailer, I feel a little lucky as just a small dose almost made me throw up in my living room.
And now it’s your turn!
The one thing I keep hearing about Relaxer is that it is full of surprises, the likes of which don’t appear to show up in this trailer. I have to admit, I am curious to see where this premise ends up going if it’s not just ninety minutes of a guy playing video games and puking on himself after all.
Eventually, I’m going to have to check Relaxer out. The film hits theaters March 22.
