IFC Films has released a great trailer for a crazy insane film called The Catechism Cataclysm. The film was directed by Todd Rohal and stars Steve Little and Robert Longstreet. I had a chance to see this film at Sundance this year and it takes you to places you would never think of going. It's such a fun weird movie, and I enjoyed it.
As I said my review, "The story is about a young priest named Father Billy, who hunts down an old high school friend named Robbie, who reluctantly meets up with Father Billy and agrees to go on a little day canoe trip down the river. While on the canoe trip, the two share some fun stories and talk about themselves and how they feel in this moment of their lives. During the final stretch of the canoe trip, they run into two bubbly Japanese girls that thrust the story into a whole new realm of weirdness and insanity."
Here's the official synopsis for the film:
Storytelling in all its forms is skewered in Todd Rohal's hilarious THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM. A favorite of Sundance, SXSW and BAMcinemafest 2011, this divinely bizarre and funny tale infuses stories within stories with wild characters until lines between Biblical tales, Mark Twain, and campfire stories are hysterically blurred. From producers Jody Hill, Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM tells the tale of Father Billy (Steve Little, EASTBOUND & DOWN), an eccentric young priest who tracks down his high school idol Robbie, an ex Heavy Metal rocker (Robert Longstreet, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS) who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. As they embark on their journey, it slowly becomes clear that the two old friends might not be as close as Father Billy remembers. When night approaches, and they realize they have lost their way-- that's when things get weird.
The movie hit's theaters on October 19th, check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
