You Can Now Watch Mr. Robot’s Disturbing Short Film The Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie

In this week’s episode of Mr. Robot, we were given a gripping flashback sequence that found young siblings Elliot (Rami Malek) and Darlene (Carly Chaikin) watching a fake 1980s horror movie called The Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie. (The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders was unfortunately already taken. Another story for Luis Buñuel, though.) The brief clips of their favorite childhood slasher flick showed some quintessentially campy fun, but now we’re privy to some even better information: The Mr. Robot team has released the first eight and a half minutes of the film online for free. Written and directed by Adam Penn, one of the show’s writers and producers, Bourgeoisie tells the story of two bratty rich kids planning a New Year’s Eve party, only to be stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant wearing the iconic fsociety mask. Are there more clues? Easter eggs? Origin stories? See for yourself, in the NSFW video available here.
