Since the beginning of the pandemic, many angry films about staying at home and isolation have been made. The whole theme of “stay at home” has become a fantasy theme for many filmmakers. From horror movies to doomsday survival movies and novel thrillers, filmmakers have explored the nature of the pandemic.
Safer at home is an example of this. As the name suggests, it combines all the above things into one. This is an American thriller about post-apocalyptic survival. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the end of the world. As a group of Los Angeles people eating at home, they seem to be losing their madness one by one. Safer at Home is written by Will Wernicke and Leah Bozonis and directed by Wernicke himself. Jocelyn Hudon, Emma Lahana, Alisa Allapach, Adwin Brown and Dan J. Johnson. Before we dive into the main plot of the movie, here is an important trailer. It will help you visualize all aspects of this thriller instead of creating chaos.
Safer at home: main plot
Now, at the beginning of the movie, it is well known that people are trying to break the curfew and law and order. At the same time, the police also strictly require people to speak at home because they are “safer” at home. This movie also broke this myth. Once a group of Los Angeles friends decides to make a virtual connection, that is, connect online via a Zoom phone, the main plot begins. This is a bit like a fun online party, but before you know it. It became a disastrous and far-reaching result.
Now, the city of Los Angeles has become a police state. This special group of friends attended an online party, and everyone agreed to join a brand-name drug. After taking this pill, an accident happened, and the night that should have been fun became a night that changed their lives. At the same time, they are helping a friend to evade the law.
Safer at home: ending explained
Once the audience dives into this thriller, they will notice two things. One, the plot seems a bit boring after a while, and two, this movie is a bit unable to fulfill its premise. However, it is interesting that this is a lens film based on a web camera, and it performs very well for a film made with this quality.
In addition to the main actors, Jane (Jocelyn Harden) and Evan (Dan J Johnson) have been dating happily for about ten years. Another couple who have lived together for a long time are Liam (Daniel Robert) and Ben (Adwin Brown). Oliver (Michael Kupisk) and Mia (Emma Rahan) are what they call “co-isolation”, and the last Harper (Alyssa Arapah) is one of them. When they both participated in a conference call celebrating Liam’s birthday, one of their friends, Oliver, sent everyone ecstasy.
After the pill was ejected, one of the friends died unexpectedly, with the body lying on the floor. Oliver, who gave out drugs, avoided the police throughout the movie, as did his girlfriend Mia. The rest of the friends are on the phone; wherever they go, they will carry their laptops with them to instruct Oliver to escape safely. In the end everything was fine, and Oliver and Mia were fine. The next morning, the friends woke up.
