It’s hard to imagine a scenario more frightening than being abducted, but how about one where you watch someone you care about being abducted right in front of you? Or, even worse, when you are already investigating a kidnapping and know just how dangerous the situation is?
This is the predicament that the upcoming release Kinneyville hinges upon. When private investigators Charlie and Kelly travel to the small town of Kinneyville, Ontario, they never assume that they themselves will soon be the next victims. With Charlie attacked and helpless as Kelly is abducted and taken to realize the same fate as Kim, they woman they were investigating, the story soon takes a wicked turn.
Delving into such issues as paranoia, bi-polar disorder, brainwashing and abuse, Kenneyville looks to put a different spin on a familiar idea. Director (and writer/producer/editor) Brooks Hunter worked his own experiences into the frantic feel of Kinneyville.
There is something seriously wrong with Kenneyville. When a young woman, Kim, from Toronto goes missing and police mysteriously drop the case earlier than expected, two private detectives are hired to find her. With undercover aliases, Charlie and Kelly (Dany Gehshan and Vanessa Broze) head to the small town of Kenneyville for answers after discovering significant clues. Upon meeting seemingly innocent locals, Charlie is brutally beaten and Kelly is ruthlessly kidnapped. Charlie awakens in shock with a new mission: to find and save his partner. We soon realize the horrific truth behind both women’s disappearances. Adrian Black (Michael Scratch), a local scientist and businessman, has been collecting innocent women for experiments in creating brainwashed assassins. Charlie soon discovers just how deep the rabbit hole goes and ultimately learns which shocking ‘mega-organization’ has hired Adrian to produce these ruthless killing machines.
Kenneyville has numerous metaphors in it for the painful journey one must travel through while falling into serious stages of anxiety and delusional thinking. It is a fictional, fantasy world in which many of the characters, events, sets, and production designs represent various stages and elements of transitioning from feeling “normal” to having the world become emotionally paralyzing. These themes stem from a very common theme in life where pain must sometimes be endured for success in the end. Similar to hard work, going through the trials of medication and therapy is what’s usually needed to get through deeper stages of mental illness. It turns into a challenging concept to wrap your head around, however, when trying to discern what’s a REAL emotion vs. what’s an emotion affected by a “chemical imbalance.”
