They Came For the Silion
Jeffrey C. Ballentine, 38:00, video

In classic Ed Wood style, bad directing, bad dialogue, and bad special effects still make a ‘great’ B movie! “When a mad scientist’s plot to create atomic henchmen unfolds, the Metro City police are called in. A by-product of this maddening experiment, the radioactive Silion pulse, makes its way through space, eventually finding and disrupting the communication array of a powerful alien race. Even as the Metro City Police use all measures to stop the mad scientist’s plot, an even more powerful foe comes to them from the stars. Can Metro City survive this horror? And why does this terror befall the citizens of Metro City? They Came for the Silion.”

6:00 - Closing Night Feature: DROPPING OUT

Dropping Out
Mark Osborne, 93:00, 35mm (shown on video)

Kent Osborne (star of HERD - MCF '99) wrote and stars in this dark comedy, directed by his brother, Mark Osborne (MORE), filled with over-saturated cartoon colors, pop-culture references, oddball characters, and one of the funniest, non-depressing treatments of suicide ever filmed.

Between his cable going out, and a smashed jar of mayonaise triggering a painful memory of lost love, TV-addicted Emile Brokton decides that his life, unlike the colorful thumbs-up reality he's used to seeing on TV, is not worth living. But his simple plan to videotape his suicide turns into a major production after he gets his co-worker , Henry (SNL's David Koechner) involved, and they discover that there's quite a market for autobiographical snuff flicks.,
