quietearth [Celluloid 09.03.09] Canada movie trailer news horror comedy

We've been following this for quite a long time, long before it was announced for TIFF, and posted a promo reel back in March, and I have to say, every new piece I see on this makes it look even better. Hippie death cult? Manson tinged? Ayup. Looking good. Reginald Harkema, you the man.

Perry, a sheltered chemical engineer, falls in love with Leslie, a former homecoming princess, when he is selected to be a jury member at her hippie death cult murder trial. Perry has always done what is expected of him. He was a straight A student who got a good job at a chemical company and proposed to his virgin Christian girlfriend, Dorothy. Leslie took a different path after she was traumatized by Kennedy’s assassination, her abortion and the divorce of her parents. She took LSD, joined a hippie death cult and helped murder a God-fearing citizen in her own home. When Perry and Leslie lock eyes in court, Perry is forced to confront the darkest deepest parts of himself and by extension, our society. Leslie, My Name is Evil is a film that explores how the choices Perry and Leslie make reflect upon the moral choices our society has made.
