I really didn’t think the movie website for the upcoming film Splinterheads would have anything on it, but the site surprised me. Now, it’s not the best site, but at least they have some things up. The best part of the movie website is the link for geocachers – I like the idea that they’re trying to incorporate another angle into the movie. Just click on the “Geocachers link” and put in your name and other info – I don’t know if they’ll actually have geocaching, but if so, that is super cool! Another nice section of the site is the downloads section, where you can find movie posters, stills, wallpaper, AIM Icons, and even a press kit. I’m not clear if the movie will be in wide release or not, so click on the “events” tab to find out where you can see it. The site also has a “Demand It” section which seems to build upon the same marketing scheme that Paranormal Activity did – the more people that demand it in certain areas, the more releases it will have.
Movie Synopses: SPLINTERHEADS introduces Thomas Middleditch as Justin Frost, a twenty-something slacker who
has decided that his “thing” is that he has no “thing” at all. When a small-time carnival rolls into
town, he meets Galaxy (Rachael Taylor), a gorgeous con artist who has more “things” going for her
than anyone he has ever met. Galaxy takes Justin on a geocaching adventure, a GPS based activity
that is part hike and part treasure hunt, and he quickly falls for her. Complicating matters are his
mom’s (Lea Thompson) floundering relationship with a lovesick local cop (Christopher McDonald)
and Galaxy’s insanely jealous boyfriend Reggie (Dean Winters). In order to win her over he’s going
to need to step up his game, and maybe even figure out what his “thing” really is.
