Horror tends to make you scared or anxious through immediate danger, but surreal horror comedy All My Friends Hate Me goes in a completely different direction. What could be worse than facing a killer threat? How about your friendship group turning on you without warning? Yeah, that'll do it.

All My Friends Hate Me tells the story of Pete as he reunites with his university friends for his birthday. But, this fun occasion is mired with paranoia and tension as Pete notices strange behaviour from all of his pals and suspects they are conspiring against him. This is exacerbated by the arrival of the mysterious Harry, who seems to be trying to steal Pete's place.

This movie will feel like nails on a chalkboard for people with social anxiety. It's a cringe-inducing experience that plagues you with the feeling that you're entirely out of place within your inner circle.

Pete's growing suspicion messes with your head, as there are enough red herrings that make you struggle to understand what is real and what's overthinking. You never know what's really going on until the climax, leaving you in puddles of anxiety.

If your birthday celebrations feel like this, you need some new buddies or therapy.
