Brought to us by Wild Eye Releasing and directed by Trevor Juenger featuring a phenominal actor for his main character Bill played by horror favorite Bill Orberst Jr. (Circus of the Dead, Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies).
Bill is a struggling writer, we can see this As he struggles to write a letter to his own mother in the opening scenes of the film…
A man not only deprive of sleeep but afraid of it… as his dreams and ideas are only filled with scenes of death… this is certainly a vial journey that’s certainly an acid-filled mushroom of a dream.
There are references to E.T., Psycho, Naked Lunch, A Clockwork Orange… a manifesto of images of surreal thoughts… but I know this isn’t a film everyone will enjoy… but I enjoyed the idea that Aliens are behind the acts of nature like hurricanes and floods… earthquakes… as revenge for earth sending Rockets up to the moon…
After watching the film a second time I’m actually beginning to enjoy Coyote it’s like a Rorschach’s test a kaleidoscope of thoughts what Bill the writer says and doesn’t say… the acting of the mover guy freind could have had more emphases or enthusiasm but then again I liked he had a no bullshit attitude.
Ultimately it’s totally up to the viewer about whether you enjoy this kind of art house type film and the first time seeing it I was trying to figure this one out but I watch it a second time and I got it.
It is slow but it’s not scary… and I hope you’ve enjoyed my thoughts…
