Multiplayer is the latest feature film from Squidjib Productions, a Denver-based production team that dabbles in low-budget movies and shorts. It’s an independent comedy film paying homage to video games old and new, told in the style of Are You Afraid of the Dark? crossed with The Twilight Zone Movie.
Four children huddle around a campfire late at night to play handheld video games, but when their batteries run out, they decide to tell ghost stories instead. Multiplayer is broken up into four segments, an anthology of comedic-horror stories that surround the subject of video games. From the government investigation into the deaths of gamers, to the discovery of a haunted Nintendo cartridge, Multiplayer is threaded together by the game-obsessed children weaving these tales.
