Strange Stuff

When: Sat., April 26 2014

Much like Troll 2 or Birdemic, writer-director Neil Breen’s new film, Fateful Findings, is so bad, it’s good. Or something like that. Plenty of movies feature the same kind of primitive, low-budget production and amateur acting. But what distinguishes Fateful Findings, which screens at midnight tonight at the Capitol Theatre, is its storyline. The plot revolves around an author (Breen) who suffers life-threatening injuries when he’s hit by a car. While recovering, he begins feverishly working on a book (he hammers away at a laptop that never appears to be actually turned on) to expose corporate and government secrets, obsessing over his research to the point of alienating his friends and his drug-addicted lover. After he’s unexpectedly reunited with a childhood friend, unnatural forces seem to be at play against him. The movie was so oddly cut and its plot so ambiguous that we didn’t exactly know what to make of it. The film screens tonight at midnight at the Capitol Theatre. Tickets are $5. (Niesel)
