The directorial debut of Phillips, who also wrote, edited and produced the film, Sanctuary: Quite a Conundrum paints an unforgettable and truly bizarre picture of suburbia–with a brush dipped in blood. BFFs Mimi (Sasha Ramos) and Tabitha (Erin Nicole Cline) are holding a party at Mimi’s house while her father is away on business. Inviting boyfriends Dutch (Joe Coffey) and Sean (Chris Greene), Mimi even allows her younger sister Kylene (Emily Rogers) to invite her boyfriend Harris (Anthony Rutowicz).
What starts as a typical pool party soon turns violent when neighbor Mark (John Lucas) shows up unannounced– completely naked and brandishing a gun. Forcing Mimi to admit to their failed tryst, Mark turns the gun on himself and falls dead into the pool. From that flash point starts a nightmarish odyssey for everyone involved. Soon, secrets will be divulged, alliances will shift and friendships will be tested. As the evening wears on, it becomes apparent that someone within their group might have tasted blood before. . . "The movie is ready for the world to see, and I am ready for the world to see it,” warns Phillips. “Let the reactions and word of mouth begin, 'cause I know for a fact, that the word of mouth for a movie such as this, will take it to a whole other level."

You've been warned.
