Population Zero

Over-saturation has certainly helped Julian T. Pinder and Adam Levins’ faux-doc Population Zero.  Horror thrillers have overplayed the mockumentary/found footage sub-genre, which is why this serious dramatization of an elaborate conspiracy theory is a breath of fresh air right out of the gate.


American Hero

Faux-doc American Hero takes place in New Orleans, a city still overcoming its devastation post-Katrina.  It’s in this state of recovery where a local named Melvin and his telekinetic powers find a meaning.  He’s a persuasive street magician to those who need something to believe in and a wild partier to his compadres, but a disappointment to the ones he loves.
