Trivia

In the dock scene, when Zadok is gesticulating at the rail, he actually knocked the Object into the 40-foot-deep Columbia River! This one-of-a-kind piece had to be retrieved by divers for shooting the following morning. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits say "The Automobile Associaton of America (AAA) is Congress' and the states' largest and most powerful organization lobbying for roads and sprawl and against environmental protection, mass transit and auto safety. If you are a member of AAA they are using your money to pursue this agenda. The Better World Club provides roadside service, towing and insurance at rates which match Triple A's.

Wonderfully bizarre
23 July 2007 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Of the half-dozen films I saw at this year's tepid Seattle Int'l Film Festival, the only ones that have really stayed with me since are 'Outsourced' and this, a local-spun sci-fi/satire/horror hybrid that might have been the festival's most bizarre -- and yet wholly charming -- entry. Judging by what I've read here, reaction is divisive (makes sense: I went with three other people to the encore screening, two of them loved it, one of them, not so much). Afterward I overheard a couple scratching their heads in the theater lobby, wondering how, exactly, one could classify what they just saw.

Which is what, I think, has stuck with me. It doesn't take off until the second act, really -- when Tori Spelling (who actually steals her scenes in a supporting role) shows up on screen, oddly enough, things start to get good. One scene near the middle at Tori's house is reminiscent of something like David Lynch at his funniest, and weirdest. The lead actor (Jason Coddle, who is in, I believe, every single scene) gives a wonderfully paranoid, intense performance. It was made on a shoestring budget, so we get rookie season, but what finally won me over in the end was the sinister mood the film builds, and sustains. Sinister is the word, more than scary, but if you've ever been to a small town in the middle of nowhere before and wondered what unspeakable evil lurks beneath those post offices and general stores, you'll at least be along for the ride.

I'd recommend it. It's fun and it's different. More movies like this should be at the multiplexes and on the shelves.
