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.

A really solid movie
20 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My friends and I usually watch budget films for laughs. Favorite budget films that come to mind are Birdemic, Revamped, and The Room. This movie is NOTHING like those.

I was blown away at the video's quality, the music, and most of the sound and acting, too (there were hiccups in the acting, as well as the sound, but it was very rare that anyone missed a beat). The plot was very good, although the movie /did/ drag slightly. However, overall, I was very pleased with the entire show.

I heard that the film was made with the intention of proving a film could be good without a huge budget. If that is the case, they did a terrific job proving their point. I was much more entertained by this than I was most mega-films, such as any recent Terminator, Pirates, Waterworld, and Transformers.

That being said, if you like movies that blow you away with special effects, obviously an indie movie isn't for you, and you'll want to steer clear of it.

I'm giving it a solid 7 out of 10, which is much higher than I would rate most movies, because it is a good movie, but again, there is a little room for improvement.
