Ruthless Films, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has tabbed Jan. 17 as the DVD debut date for director Jake Myers’ Conspiracy Theory.
Björn Eriksson (Ben Kobold) is one of those UFO, alien invaders, Big Foot, lost treasure, Area 51 — pick your poison — nut jobs. He makes television “documentaries” about the strange and unexplained (well, “unexplained” if you are not looking too closely for an explanation). “Alien Engineers” is his series and his latest theory is that the water level of Lake Mead has fallen so low that alien submarines can no longer maintain their secret — strange lights, that “people” have reported, are his evidence for this.
But there’s more evidence. Southern Nevada is the epicenter for alien culture and Eriksson has plenty of footage to prove it (say, what about that giant glass pyramid and all those mysterious carvings right out there on the Las Vegas Strip).
Of course Eriksson and his film crew, including Britney (Jennifer Mills) and Jamie (Jamie Bragg), are living in some sort of alternate universe. This is a joke right? He says that Area 51 is really an alien morgue and research is being conducted on their DNA and mice! Where does he come up with this stuff?
But, what if there is something really under the lake, the lake that has become “dangerously” low!! We follow their investigation “out there” (meaning a boat ride on the lake) and they indeed discover something … a deadly mystery that makes the silly suddenly real! Perhaps “Alien Engineers” will need a new host and film crew much sooner than expected!
Conspiracy Theory is great fun, with a mocking tone, that turns deadly serious is the third act. There is indeed “something” out there … Mulder & Scully would be proud!
