A murderous gourmet comedy with a bite
An on-the-run thief has stumbled into the flat of Flo (Julia Blake The Starter Wife, Salems Lot) and Minnie (Lynette Curran Love My Way, Japanese Story), demanding refuge from pursuing cops. His only problem is the flatfoot on his trail (Simon Chilvers Changi, The Farm) who has unknowingly taken up lodgings in the next room.
Complications further abound when a gas leak in the fugitives room leaves his dead body to be discovered by Flo and Minnie in the morning. With a larcenous history of their own, the women will do everything in their power to keep the death of a harboured criminal under wraps from a veteran sergeant-in-residence and they will do absolutely anything to hide the body.
A scandalous, dark comedy, Mushrooms is the meal for any movie-lovers palate that will leave you hungry for seconds. approx. 90 mins.
