This movie is a trip in the most literal sense. The plot follows a group of dancers who attended the same party one night. After ingesting drug-laced sangria, the night dissolves into a mess of murder and terror. And while this is certainly not one for those looking for a lighthearted watch, there are some incredible dance scenes and outfits.

Cooper and Lawrence were lauded for their performances. Kevin Jagernauth of The Playlist praised the film as "an enormously entertaining, crowd-pleasing winner" and noted that the performances from the two leads were "carefully developed, and perfectly pitched", deserving of awards. David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter said that "the chemistry between Cooper and Lawrence makes them a delight to watch" and that their performances anchor the ensemble cast who also give great performances even in small roles. Rooney also complimented the "invigorating messiness" and "nervous energy" of the choreography. Richard Corliss of Time magazine also applauded the performances of the leads, particularly Lawrence, stating that her performance is "the reason to stay" to watch the whole movie, and praising her maturity.

Event Description: To map a journey of imperfect recovery and to provide instruction for others who wish to supplant existing power structures with reparative ones, artists Marisa Williamson and Billie Lee present an interactive workshop inspired by Vault. In this workshop we focus on the subject and the landscape, finding ways to locate shared and intersecting sources of shame in order to build new strategies to resist its corrosive power. Vault takes audiences through the landscape of abandoned and poisonous schools in New England. It is a site-specific interdisciplinary performance that erects new performance spaces out of the ruins of others.
