Idol Minds Written by William Robert Carey Directed by Jason Sutton IDOL MINDS IS RECOMMENDED FOR ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY On a cool, moonlit night, as gossamer mist drifts eerily over the Hollywood Forever Cemetery's emerald lawn, Scott, a young man of dubious ambition, digs furiously in the shadow of famed Hollywood icon, Dominic Lourdes imposing headstone. His friend Ronnie, a large low-watt bulb, kneels on the cusp of the open grave, waiting anxiously to haul out the coffin. Starved for money and opportunities, the Z-list actors snatch the coffin to ransom the remains. They take it to the rundown bungalow Scott shares with his girlfriend, Bella, a personal assistant to a Hollywood star. Scott's confidant he's stumbled upon the perfect low-risk crime – after all, the kidnap victim is dead – but fissures in his plan quickly materialize. Ronnie's brash Goth-girlfriend, Lizard, shows up, demanding a place at the table. Then Ronnie disappears, returning to the cemetery to watch police investigate the robbery. He runs into a loopy celebrity worshiper. Snafus snowball when Scott's cohorts squabble over the ransom and then open the casket. Shit hits the fan when the widow delivers a surprising response to their demands. The heist goes from hopeful to horror show as the bumbling crooks try desperately to salvage the endeavor, battling for possession of the remains. IDOL MINDS is a black screwball comedy with glints of acrid commentary on celebrity, adoration, ambition, and greed.
