Trivia

Paranoia was originally something Brad Jones wrote for himself to direct several years before this film was produced. When friend Ryan Mitchelle, who has helped Jones out with film projects in the past, was looking for something as his directing debut he asked if Jones had any old scripts he could use. Jones went through his unproduced scripts and found the one for Paranoia. Mitchelle was looking to make something dark and psychological and decided Paranoia was ideal for his debut. While Jones stilled liked the concept of Paranoia and felt it could be a good film, he admitted to not liking the original script he had written, so he basically re-wrote the entire screenplay, keeping only the original concept.

I'm Not Paranoid, I Just Need A Better Screenplay
16 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're at all familiar with Brad Jones' Cinema Snob program you'll have a blast recognizing faces in the cast. If you're unfamiliar with The Cinema Snob program or its cast you're less likely to consider this a satisfying film. Writer-director Brad Jones is clearly trying to emulate the great film noir classics with this would-be thriller but he lacks the experience to elevate this film above its numerous clichés. Brad Jones has an appealing screen presence as proved on his show The Cinema Snob but the rest of the cast might as well be cardboard cutouts. The only other performer in the cast that manages to make anything happen with her scenes is Brad's real-life wife, Jillian, who plays the waitress Claire. I'd personally like to see Brad attempt something outside of the thriller genre, he does a splendid job with comedy (something I felt this film could have used more of). This film takes itself far too seriously when a more ironic approach might have resulted in a fresher product. I can't completely write off "Paranoia" as it features excellent production values considering its limited budget. The cinematography, locations, costuming, and scoring are all convincing and the craftsmen behind the scenes are clearly a talented group. My fingers are crossed for something better in the future from Brad Jones and Company.
