Caye Casas’ The Coffee Table ‘In-your-face… absolutely not for the faint of heart’ on digital 20 May

‘An unrelenting, bleak domestic drama that takes an incredibly sinister turn. This in-your-face film pushes the envelope and is absolutely not for the faint of heart.

Prepare yourself’

Screen Zealots

‘An exercise in dread and empathy being simultaneously milked for all they’re worth. Yes, these feelings are strange bedfellows, but they’re married here with a dark perversity that works wonderfully… Fans of Solondz, Östlund and…Larry David are sure to love this’

Scully Vision

‘Focusing on the dark part of dark comedy… best watched as blind as humanly possible, one of the bleakest, meanest, most unbearably cruel movies you could ever see… If “Uncut Gems” was billed as the most stressful time you can have at the cinema, then this movie makes that look like a children’s educational programme’

Slash Film

‘The horror film of the year… one of the most distressing nightmares of recent horror cinema’

El Mundo, Spain

Make room for The Coffee Table (aka La Mesita),a wickedly original horror from Spain, helmed by Caye Casas (Killing God),who co-wrote withCristina Borobia (RIP), which made waves (and stomachs churn) on the festival circuit and is now set for its UK debut thanks to Second Sight Films.

The film has been described as ‘An unsettling descent into absolute madness and misery (Guy at the Movies)and ‘A genre-leaping marvel… a farce… a melodrama, now a tragedy… uproariously funny until it is not at all’ (Projected Figures)and can now be experienced by British audiences as its set for a digital release on 20 May 2024.

David Pareja (Amigo) and Estefanía de los Santos (Jaulas) give gobsmackingly brilliant performances as Jesus and María, a couple going through a tough time in their relationship following the recent arrival of their newborn son. The fiery pair are struggling with the pressures that a new baby brings and their bickering only amplifies on a shopping trip to buy furniture that’s about to change their lives forever.

What begins as a simple disagreement over which coffee table to buy quickly descends into a shocking and tragic event that will rip their lives apart.

The film, co-starring Josep Maria RieraClaudia Riera and Eduardo Antuña promises an excruciatingly uncomfortable and harrowing experience, with a darker-than-dark sense of humour.

Sit down with The Coffee Table for a fantastically horrifying feature that you’ll never forget.
