Oh man, poor dude, but… that’ll learn ya’, sticking your junk into the great unknown, lol.
I vaguely remember this movie. Some strange otherworldly kids running amok without parental guidance, stirring up all kinds of shit, and murdering parents for some strange cause, guess I could plug it in YouTube to see if it’s available for free.
Ancient alien technology and kids floating around the corn fields, that would be a creepy corn maze experience in the fall, 'children of the candy corn maze'... so wrong.
Anyway, Gomer, as opposed to someone knocking on their door ten years later saying, “hi dad!” ,accidentally (or was it fate) finds his long lost son Jacob, and a bunch of inbreed clones to boot living deep in the heart of America on some farm caught between the future past and the eighteenth century. Clones that he may or may not have fathered via an ancient breeding ritual to harvest his seed, or umm… syrup? Okay, lol.
I guess Jacob wasn't the one who was really lost, as in long lost son, the absence has been Gomer all along, but perhaps he always knew he’d end up back there. Maybe he needs a few extra bucks for a new set of wheels, err… definitely a new window now.
But, now that he knows the truth and reluctantly gives up one more healthy dose of heirloom for sowing, he’s about to meet his ultimate fate at the hands of what could only be construed as his one and only nemesis… the offspring of a really dumbass idea to earn a few bucks in the first place! How many coincidences until it becomes mathematically improbable, that’s what I’ve been saying as of late.
We can only hope that the seedpods don’t accidentally get sprayed with pesticides, otherwise the concept of these genetically modified children might turn out be full blown genetically mutated freaks, lol. Noticed a typo... you'll find it. Best of luck!
Fine imagination on display here. There was lots going on, and I think you felt like you needed to tell us everything. There was an awful lot of set-up for not that big of a payoff. If you had streamlined this, trim it by a page or two, you probably would have had my full attention. Don't get me wrong, you never lost my attention, either. I really wanted to know what was going on and why, but again, the reveal was a bit underwhelming.
Also, there was a feeling of tense comedy running through this and it took me out a little. I think Gomer came across as too aloof, given his college background and all. And Jacob a bit too light, making subtle jokes and smart-ass answers. If you'd gone full creepy I think it would have worked much better. Overall, good effort, but not quite.
The logline made me chuckle. A lonely wanker on a lonely highway suddenly finds himself taking a guilt trip down memory lane. lol!
I like the titles on the page as well, a lovely design.
This one was weird and way out bonkers. I'm not sure it meets the parameters exactly. Jacob doesn't so much as leave clues for Gomer, he explains all in-depth with lots of exposition, so much so I found myself skipping. It's a huge budget as well.
However, nicely written and it's not afraid to NOT take itself seriously at all. A spoof of Children of the Corn is exactly what this is.

This one went way over my head. Still reeling. A testicle harvester? WHOO WHOO! WARBLE WARBLE. I couldn't sleep last night. But you met the parameters. The OTN dialogue ,near the end, tied up a lot of the loose ends. Surely not a campfire ditty, hey but, thought provokingly amusing.
Hahaha! This reminds me of the Robbery in a sperm bank. Don't get me wrong. I love a good "mind fvck" like the next guy/gal, but by the end of this I felt like I was on a bizarre acid trip. Just thought I'd mention it.
The writing is good... If a bit too wordy on the tech-like jargon. I know, exposition is a necessary evil, but I had to mention it. Clearly this a spoof, and a good one. So hats off to your twisted mind. And I have a inkling feeling who wrote it. Love the title page. Despite problems mentioned by others' - dare I say I liked it. Good Job!
Okay, that's me fallen down the rabbit hole and not sure if I'll resurface.
What the hell is molten candy corn? Likely a local knowledge thing we're not accustomed to downunder. Still, I bet you've never had a chip butty before...
This sure is some crazy discombobulation of plot. Do you remember Sandra Elstree? She was a long time poster here who hasn't made her presence felt in a while. If she ever returns you and she should team up. What a mind-bender of a script that would be.
Title page: Tick. Parameters: I think that's a tick, given his secret activities and past coming back to bite him.
Anyway, this was warped, complicated, amusing, and visually delightful. You could do with, (dare I say,)an Editor, as at one point I did start seeing double, but then I expect the mere mention of one might horrify your creative sensibilities.
P.S. Not sure I've ever seen that particular word used in a logline before.
