Dose of Reality is a 2013 mystery-thriller directed by Christopher Glatis, which follows the story of a woman named Lacy, played by Fairuza Balk, who finds herself in a complicated situation after accepting an invitation to a house party. The film begins with Lacy, who is coping with the recent loss of her mother and a crumbling relationship with her boyfriend, attending a job interview in a restaurant. She gets hired on the spot and is invited to a party thrown by her new coworker, Alexis (played by Tanya Allen) in their boss's house, which is practically isolated from the outside world.

As the party starts and night falls, more guests arrive, and Lacy meets a handsome young man named Jake, played by Ryan Merriman. The two immediately hit it off, sharing stories of their pasts, and Lacy feels like she's found an unexpected connection. However, things take a dark turn when one of the party guests dies mysteriously.

Suddenly, Lacy finds herself trapped in a house with strangers she doesn't know and is unsure who she can trust. Everyone has their secrets, and the plot thickens as Lacy, Jake, and musician Tyler, played by Rick Ravanello, tries to unravel the mystery surrounding the party, all of them searching for answers.

In the midst of the chaos, Lacy's life is further complicated by her ex-boyfriend, Daniel (played by Wesley Jonathan), who shows up at the party uninvited, sparking even more tension between the characters.

As the night unfolds, it becomes apparent that some of the party guests have ulterior motives, and Lacy becomes increasingly paranoid and concerned about her safety. She finds herself struggling to sift through the lies, deceit, and betrayals as she tries to identify who's to blame for the death of one of the guests.

Overall, Dose of Reality is a gripping and suspenseful thriller that keeps the audience engaged from beginning to end. The characters are well-developed and complex, and the plot twists are expertly executed, leaving the viewer guessing until the very end. The tension builds as Lacy slowly begins to unravel the truth, and the climax is both satisfying and surprising.

The performances are solid, with Fairuza Balk delivering a standout role as Lacy, a woman who's dealing with profound grief and trying to find her footing amidst the chaos. Ryan Merriman and Rick Ravanello also deliver convincing performances as Jake and Tyler, respectively, with strong chemistry between the three leads.

Dose of Reality is a well-directed, well-written thriller with an intriguing premise that keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat. It's a must-watch for fans of the genre who are looking for a movie that's both thought-provoking and entertaining.
