Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to begin their adult lives. Literally all their free time is spent building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang "Mother Medusa". While waiting for the world to end, their call to excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. Often life's simplest and most obvious truths are the hardest to see, but once you've burned everything to the ground it may be the only thing left standing. Written by
A love story with apocalyptic stakes.

Did You Know?
Evan Glodell and Tyler Dawson, now old friends, originally met in 2003 after Evan saw him in a small play and cast him as the role of Aiden. The early version of the film was to be shot on a camcorder, mostly inside Evan's small apartment. Five years later, after an attempt to make Bellflower and working on many other projects (and at one point becoming roommates), they finally returned to the original purpose of their meeting when the current version of Bellflower went into production in 2008.
