Home / Now Showing / SOMETHING IN THE DIRT
Only the brilliant minds of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead could channel the tedium of the pandemic and the lockdowns into a sci-fi paranoia thriller of epic proportions. A puzzle-box designed to entice and befuddle in equal proportions, the film sees neighbors John and Levi (exceptionally played by the directors themselves) reluctantly partner up to investigate the supernatural events plaguing their apartment building in order to gain some fame and fortune in their lives. What follows is a rabbit-hole that leads them to discover the dangers of each other and the universe at large in a film that encapsulates perfectly a sense of Los Angeles that is both alluring, unknown and dangerous to know.
