Synopsis/Details: 

Adam, a young grad student, is grieving the sudden loss of his older brother Oliver. When he receives an invitation from Oliver's hockey team friends to a celebration of life party at a secluded estate in the country, Adam resists. He's quiet, distant, and uncomfortable in groups of men - but decides that honoring his brother takes precedent over his insecurities.

Upon arrival, Adam is pushed way beyond his comfort zone. Oliver's friends are jockish, immature, and even a little inappropriate. But they reveal themselves to be kind-hearted and respectful of Adam's grief as well. Could all of his worrying have been for nothing?

Soon after the celebration of life gets underway, Adam encounters a masked outsider watching them from the peripheries of the estate... and their pleasant night of revelry quickly spirals out of control.

As the outsider hunts down the guest list, Adam realizes he and his new friends have unwittingly become pawns in something much stranger than any of them could have anticipated. This isn't your typical masked killer.

Luckily, Adam isn't your typical victim.

"Handsome Devil" is a twisty horror/slasher with an undercurrent of dark humor (in the vein of "You're Next" and "Ready Or Not") that centers an LGBT protagonist.
