I'm Thinking Of Ending Things features an unnerving and terrifying twist on the usual 'Meet The Parent' tropes depicted in films.

Jessie plays a woman who reluctantly agrees to meet the parents of her new boyfriend Jake [Jesse Plemons], despite not being too sure about the future of their romance.

After meeting his oddball parents [Collette and Thewlis], the woman quickly plunges into an unsettling psychological spiral as she tries hopelessly to make her way back home.

In an attempt to tie up the movie, a dramatic ballet number is performed by a random couple before the janitor strips naked and hallucinates about a maggot-infested pig.
