“Logic hasn’t exactly been this week’s selling point,” declares one of the characters at the end of the trailer for Apocalypse, CA. Yeah, I can see where he’s coming from. This looks to be an offbeat indie film that mixes asteroid Armageddon, another attack of a 50-foot woman, and a bunch of twenty-somethings with screwed up personal relationships.
Mysterious radio personality and apparent part-time genie ‘Sassy Boots’ (Elizabeth Sandy) takes it upon herself to grant John Parsons (Nick Mathis) a few wishes five days before the world is to be destroyed by an asteroid. Only problem is John’s wishes aren’t exactly calculated, or even planned — the end result of which is a situation far worse than before.
Accompanied by his brother, Hank (Alexander Cardinale); Hank’s friend, Renee (Anne McDaniels); and John’s childhood crush, Jacklyn (Erin Bodine), John and friends take the high road to Palm Springs – otherwise known as the ‘epicenter’ – where the asteroid will first strike Earth. With a ‘bite the bullet’ approach, John and friends learn a little more about life and each other, all leading up to a wild climax of booze, fantasy, and guns-a-blazin’ desert adventure.
That’s the plot for Apocalypse, CA according to the press release for this oddball indie feature from writer-director Chad Peter. Peter is trying to be somewhat secretive about the film’s more audacious elements so for now we only have the film’s official website and this fairly bizarre trailer to go by. I’m not even quite sure what to make of this one.
Thanks to Avery for the tip.
