Filmmaking debuts don’t get much more fascinating, or promising, than the horror-tinged sci-fi tale Coherence, the first feature from writer-director James Ward Byrkit, which begins its theatrical run this Friday. The film stars Emily Foxler, Maury Sterling, Elizabeth Gracen, Alex Manugian, Lauren Maher, Hugo Armstrong, Lorene Scafaria, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer vet Nicholas Brendon as a group of friends who gather together for a meal the night a comet is passing overhead and discover there is an identical dinner party, featuring eight doppelgangers, happening down the street.

You can read my full, and fulsome, review of Coherence in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. And you can check out both an exclusive clip from the film and its trailer below.
