You've never experienced a movie like BURNING PALMS; five stories so twisted, they could only take place in Los Angeles. A father's relationship with his precocious teenage daughter is too close for comfort for his fiancée. A woman becomes undone by her boyfriend's kinky bedroom request. A gay couple brings home the ultimate lifestyle accessory: an African child. An unsupervised young boy leads his brothers in disturbing games. A lonely woman confronts her attacker with a bizarre request. Dylan McDermott (In the Line of Fire), Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice), Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210), Lake Bell (What Happens in Vegas), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), and Nick Stahl (Sin City) head an "uncommonly good cast" (Hollywood Reporter) in this macabre comedy from the co-screenwriter of Disturbia and Paranormal Activity 2.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Making his directorial debut, screenwriter Christopher Landon struggles so mightily to offend that he forgets to supply a rooting interest in his characters.
Rotten: Christopher B. Landon's sordid anthology film never quite achieves the balance of melodrama and dark comedy for which it's aiming.
Rotten: Burning Palms is too sick to attract the masses, but he's onto something subversively valid, and the film is never boring.
Rotten: Evinces enough hatred of mankind to make Todd Solondz look like a dedicated humanist.
