Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.02.17] action comedy

Best known for his dramatic turns in a number of cult favourite movies over the last few years, notably Compliance, Cheap Thrills and The Innkeepers, Pat Healy is making his feature film debut behind the camera in the action comedy Take Me.

Written by up-and-comer Mike Makowsky, Healy directs and also stars as Ray Moody, a businessman with an upstart business specializing in kidnappings. That's right, for a fee, Moody will orchestrate the kidnapping of your dreams.

For his latest job, he's hired by Anna St. Blair (Taylor Schilling of "Orange is the New Black" fame) for a "surprise" kidnapping job. Things quickly get bad for Moody when it turns out Anna may not be who she claims to be. Comedy ensues.

This doesn't look quite as dark as some of the other projects Healy has been associated with over the last few years but the trailer does suggest that things get a little murky between Moody and his "victim" though the movie is quite obviously more invested in the laughs.

Take Me opens theatrically in NY and LA and will be available on digital platforms on May 5.

Recommended Release: Cheap Thrills
