Fake Movie Friday Vol 2: Straw Man

I told Pete I was going to do three of these in a row. Let’s see how I do.

Straw Man

The camera follows a crow as it flies above a corn field in the height of fall. It lands on a wooden sign with a painted cartoon scarecrow. The sign says
“pumpkin pickin
fried dough
petting zoo
corn maze”
A car drives past. The camera begins to follow the car. It parks and a family gets out and walk towards the fair.

It’s a mixed race family. Their son doesn’t seem very excited and is constantly on his phone. His mother teases him, “You know, if you ever looked up from that phone you might experience life. Who knows, you might even see a human female.” The son shrugs and goes back to his phone.

The parents are loving it. They pet all the animals and eat all the food. They pull their son into the corn maze.

The son follows but he keeps looking down at his phone. He looks up and can’t see his parents anymore. He pulls up google maps on his phone and it obviously is no help. He starts to get concerned and starts to run in the direction he imagines they went. He continues and ends up walking in circles. He is getting more and more scared when the maze opens up revealing a scarecrow.

Fake Movie Friday Vol 2- The Caper of Causality

Only 3 weeks left in the year so I should probably use two of them to finish up a trilogy I started during week 41. Title comes from Tigs. Here is a link to the first film The Case for Causality.

The Caper of Causality

Arthur is busy with cases and clients. He’s the talk of the town, we are reintroduced to his neighbor Nora who still hangs out with him and helps him as a bit of an office manager. She also helps him when after a long day of using his power he is exhausted and has a terrible headache. She is making him tea and she starts to hum a song. He gets a vision/memory of being younger and that song being sung to him. He freaks out a bit and asks her about it. She tells him it was just a melody stuck in her head. She heads out and he relaxes until the phone rings.

Fake Movie Friday Vol 2: Mapping Daisies

Title comes from the wonderful Ashley at Pig Pile last night. I highly suggest going back into Vol 1 and reading her FMFs. They are weird. This title is weird. She is weird.

Mapping Daisies

Bud, an elderly man, wakes up from his bed slowly. On the side table there is an old picture of a woman holding a daisy. There are notes written in nice handwriting around his house reminding him to do certain things. He dresses moderately and picks up a corded phone. Next to the phone is a list of phone numbers and he dials the number labeled Walter Jr. His son answers the phone and he tells Walter that he needs a ride to city hall.

Fake Movie Friday Vol 2: Saturday Matinee Club

Title from Tigs. Which actually stands for Titles Instantly Generated Simulator. Wait, did you think I’ve been talking about a real person all these weeks?

Saturday Matinee Club

We open midday in a cemetery. Everyone wears black as a priest talks about the dead. We are told that the deceased, Thomas, died young after a lengthy battle with cancer. The camera pans around the crowd as it talks about the friends of the deceased and we are given glimpses of the rest of the Saturday Matinee Club who are here to bury their friend.

Fake Movie Friday Vol 2: Fangs

To be honest this is the first week of the new volume where I really don’t feel like doing this. But so close to a year! Title is from Tigs!

Fangs

We get a montage of all sorts of cool teens heading into high school. They do a lot of cliché cool teen stuff. We settle on one very uncool teen though. His name is Daniel but everyone calls him Fangs, because of his teeth. He has very sharp canines that look like fangs. I know you were confused so I explained it. He is a bit of an outcast.
