18 & Over is an erotic slasher.
The plot of the upcoming film is a cam-girl’s worst nightmare. Per the synopsis, 18 & Over stars Benson as Vicky, a young woman who books what is supposed to be a relaxing stay at a remote cabin, following an emotional breakup. During her retreat, she models lingerie for an adults-only streaming service (called 18 and Over) to make extra money. All seems to be well at first, but things take a dangerous shift when the power goes out during a live stream, and Ashley realizes she’s being stalked by a masked murderer.
The NFT package for 18 & Over comes with an exclusive screener.
According to Variety, the makers of the film have partnered with digital artists to create a collection of NFTs that are inspired by the movie. There are 10,000 limited-edition NFTs up for grabs, and anyone who purchases them will also be given a private two-month streaming window to watch 18 & Over. The NFTs are reportedly $263 each and will go on sale on August 5th. Fans who purchase the art will get access to the “collector’s cut” starting August 12th.
