The Nobodies
Directed by Jay Burleson
USA, Narrative, 86 minutes

The premise: Early 90’s Alabama, amateur filmmaker Warren Werner hosts a local premiere of his film, Pumpkin, shot on VHS for 600 bucks. The town is outraged, accusing Warren and girlfriend, Samantha Dixon, of engaging in satanic rituals. The two commit suicide. A documentary film crew begins investigating, but never complete the film. Pumpkin and the remaining doc footage are seared together to create The Nobodies. This celebratory screening doubles as The Nobodies Troma release party, surprises are expected. Stick around for a screening of Troma classic The Toxic Avenger to follow.
