While it may not have received the biggest buzz at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival, those that have seen it know, ”All My Friends Hate Me,” is hysterical and a poignantly all-too-real look at social anxiety. Just look at Rotten Tomatoes where the film currently has a 100 score. Directed by Andrew Gaynord, known for Netflix’s comedy series “The Characters” (Tim Robinson, John Early), his latest, ”All My Friends Hate Me” borders somewhere between comedy and horror and hysterically mines that evil portion of our paranoid, insecure brains that make us take the most innocuous comments as slights or passive-aggressive attacks.

The film stars a lot of up-and-coming U.K. talent like Tom Stourton, Charly Clive, Georgina Campbell, Dustin Demri-Burns, Antonia Clarke, Graham Dickson, Joshua McGuire, Christopher Fairbank, and Kieran Hodgson.
The film centers on Pete (Stourton, who is also a co-writer on the film), who is cautiously excited about reuniting with his college crew for a birthday weekend. But, one by one, his friends slowly turn against him. Is he being punished, is he paranoid, or is it all a cruel and twisted prank meant to deliberately make him go mad?
Here’s the official synopsis:
It’s Pete’s birthday and the old gang from college are throwing him a party out in the country. During what’s meant to be a joyful weekend reunion, Pete finds himself increasingly unnerved by his friends’ inside jokes and snarky comments. As the atmosphere goes from awkward to terrifying to downright surreal, Pete is pushed to the breaking point. Is he being paranoid or is he the butt of some elaborate joke?
Super LTD will release “All My Friends Hate Me” in theaters on March 11 and On Digital on March 25. Watch the first trailer below.
