Metal Detector Maniac
|Label||Gold Ninja Video|
“You know, I can tell you honestly, there’s nothing quite like these movies by Matt Farley and Charlie Roxburgh. I’ve seen four of them now, and they’re all of a piece—no-budget comedies all set in small New England towns, all playing on one movie genre or another, sometimes two or more at once, and all as inventive as they are unhinged—and I find them utterly charming. And their latest, Metal Detector Manic, sees the pair in top genre-bending form. Highly recommended!”
-John Paizs, writer/director, Crime Wave
“Part musical, part noir, all indie charm...I laughed out loud while savoring every delicious song and white-knuckle twist, right up to the final note.”
-Dave Payne, writer/director, Reeker
See that man in the distance?
The guy who has been using his metal detector to investigate the same patch of grass in this public park for over an hour? Is he a peaceful hobbyist, searching for historical artifacts?
Or, is he some sort of devious maniac, hiding in plain sight, waiting for an opportunity to prey upon the innocent?
When Matt Farley & Tom Scalzo, music professors currently on sabbatical, spot this man, they become immediately suspicious. Given Tom’s highly sensitive “vibe receptors,” these suspicions carry significant weight.
Fearing their sleepy bedroom community to be in jeopardy, our heroes have little choice but to reinvent themselves as citizen sleuths and dive headlong into a full investigation. The hair-raising secrets that they uncover must be seen to be believed!
