NEVER RARELY SOMETIMES ALWAYS
Seven Stages stars Sam Huntington and Kate Micucci as a couple who think they’ve hit the jackpot when they find a cheap apartment in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, there’s a problem: the apartment was previously inhabited by a cult leader (Taika Waititi) who took his own life in the bathtub — and now his followers are breaking in, one at a time, to follow him into the afterlife via the couple’s bathtub. Further complicating matters is an eccentric LAPD detective who’s investigating the suicides while trying to sell a screenplay based on his life. Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss (By Passing Through the Gateway Chosen By the Holy Storsh) is directed by Canadian filmmaker Vivieno Caldinelli, making his feature directorial debut after a number of short films previously, as well as lots of TV work including Splatalot and This Hour Has 22 Minutes. (First Showing)
Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss releases in select US cinemas on 6 March, then video-on-demand on 17 March.
