Chloe and Jack travel to Miami for their honeymoon. They decide that a peyote experience will strengthen their marriage. However, they've been given a powerful strand that awakens a desire to eat human flesh. Confronting their toxic relationship, their room becomes a den of love, lust and resentment as Chloe realizes that the way to escape this troubled marriage to is to literally consume Jack.

'Do Not Disturb' tells the story of Chloe and Jack as they travel from Canada to Miami for a vacation in hopes of some how fixing their relationship that seems to be too far gone. While there they do a little partying with another couple but even that causes conflict. Chloe wants to have a child while Jack doesn't seem to be for it. She just wants him to grow up and become more responsible.

One day while at the beach they see a man on the beach that seems out of sorts and talking about crazy shit but he then gives them his drugs he says came from Mexico and what happens next is something they never saw coming.

'Do Not Disturb' is a well made film that looks and sounds great. Written and directed by John Ainslie who introduces to the characters and their story and then unleashes what might be the most violent and unsettling film I have seen in some time. This is a couple who might have loved each other at some point but there seems to be a lot of anger and regret and combine with this drug they were given and all hell breaks loose.

The film's cast did a fantastic job including, Kimberly Laferriere and Rogan Christopher Chloe and Jack. Both are amazing and have great chemistry together. The rest of the cast including, Janet Porter and Christian McKenna who play Wendy and Wayne, the couple they meet at the hotel.

'Do Not Disturb' gets in your head and under your skin quickly and it just gets more and more disturbing as it moves along. Try not to read too many spoilers before watching it but I can tell you that this film is sure to shack you to your core. As disturbing as it is it is also a horror film that exiles on every level. A drug induced trip and goes down the wrong hole and the results are brutal, violent and bloody in all the best ways. Be sure to check it out when it opens in theaters on 11/17 and on VOD 11/21.
