THIS IS NOT A SAFE SPACE.
When a hurricane isolates a group of college students in a mansion, they decide to play a game in the dark that ends with one of them dead. A horror-comedy whose mystery and final twist may not come as a huge shock; the confusion of the hunt for the killer is too much of a clue. But the film is a lot of fun as it navigates its young cast of characters through the challenges of social media and the tortured politically correct way they talk to each other; playwright Sarah DeLappe’s dialogue helps. Nasty at times, including Pete Davidson’s amusing turn as a coked-out rich boy.
