Extra Info

They call themselves the ‘Three Immortal Reptiles’. Yes, perhaps their appearance of innocuous if somewhat too fanciful kids is merely a ploy for Hazel, Jodie and Alice to hide their true, magical natures. On their little motorcycles they hover around wielding paintball guns on a relentless trail of mischief through their hometown Ribbon, Wyoming. Their latest feat, stealing a video game console from a local fabricant, needs to be celebrated the proper way: in pajamas and with lots of junk food. But to their horror Hazel and Jodie’s mom has changed the password to the TV! Upstairs they find their mom down with the flu and she will only yield to their endless pleas if they bring her a blueberry pie from the bakery. Little do they know this seemingly simple errand will lead them onto a long and dangerous quest, as the baker needs a speckled egg to make the pie and at the local grocery store the last box of speckled eggs is scooped up by John Redrye, member of the Enchanted Blade Gang, which is led by Anna-Freya, a witch who uses her powers for evil…

Weston Razooli’s debut feature is a whimsical wonderland, in which the laws and rules seem entirely made up, nay dictated by children at play. Much like Spielberg, he adopts the children’s perspective to render the mundane extraordinary (THE GOONIES come to mind). But he pushes things even further, the very form and narrative structure seem to sprout directly from a child’s imagination, like an absurdly comical Zelda adventure in bold, bright colors.
