Storyline

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 Coatwolf Productions

Trivia

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.

Quotes

Aiden: Dude you are fucking Lord Humongous. The master of fire, the king of the wasteland. Lord Humongous doesn't get cheated on by some stupid bitch. Lord Humongous doesn't say was it good for you, he doesn't say who called or where were you last night. He doesn't leave the fucking gang when he falls in love. Nobody fucking tells Lord Humongous what to do. Lord Humongous fights when he wants to fights and fucks when he wants to fuck and when all else fails he drives straight into the fucking tanker. ...

Slow and drawn out
7 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I'm not an expert on Directors and such, but I do know a bad movie from a good movie.

This movie started slow and I waited and waited for it to pick up, and it didn't. I had to (painfully) keep watching to see if their was more to this movie, and before I knew it it was over.

I am very perplexed that this film has a score of (6.3) on IMDb as to me its rating was closer to (2). I am starting to not trust the rating system here to help me find good movies.

I would rate this as movie to watch if there isn't anything else to do....
