It sounds like a bad Twitter trend. Instead, it’s a fan film so ill-conceived that I kinda love its audacity. Take a movie nobody has cared about in at least a decade, give it a twist that’s idiotic, shoot the whole thing with production and sound quality so low that nobody could ever mistake it for an actual trailer…and then even though your concept is nuts, commit to it fully.
The result is “Tree’s All That,” in which a handsome high-schooler falls in love with a tree. Surprisingly, no joke about getting wood…though they make every other one.
Watch after the jump, if you share my taste in bad.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
