An alternate version known as "The Writer's Cut" appears on the screenwriter/star Brad Jones' website. Notable changes include: The film is now in black and white. Some scenes now include pop songs of the 60's and 80's. All foreshadowing hinting at the movie's conclusion has been removed. Many of Jerrid Foiles' lines were cut. Also removed are any time a character uses the word "paranoia." Many lines have been cut from the final church scene. Some sound effects were also fixed, namely a more appropriate glass shattering sound near the beginning of the film. See more »
This movie stars Brad Jones. Jones has an internet following as the Cinema Snob reviewing low budget horror films as an overly snobby film critic. This film represents his attempt to write a serious Thriller. Jones has directed other films in the past but none of them have had any strong production values. This is because none of these films had any kind of budget. Paranoia was written by and stars Jones but not directed by Jones. This film was directed by Ryan Mitchelle. With someone else directing Jones was able to work on the writing and his performance as the lead actor. This was a great improvement since great attention was given to the over all look of the film which greatly reflects the films dark feel.
Overall the film was enjoyable. The constraints of a low budget were obvious a few times but overall it was entertaining. Ryan Mitchelle's direction was solid. The pacing was slow at first but picked up mad way through. The final act of the film was actually pretty riveting. But next time invest in some better microphones. Jones' writing however leaves something to be desired. Overly indulgent and clunky dialog that goes on way too long.
I would recommend this film to anyone who loves indie films.
