Las Vegas, Nevada – Strange Mind Films is pleased to introduce a live action and partially animated feature film The Weathered Underground where user can choose what happens next. Written and directed by critically acclaimed writer David N. Donihue, The Weathered Underground is an interactive motion picture that involves users into a hilarious life of a twenty one year old guy as he is trying to find his way through the underground.
The film is based on a story of a young and unruly musician (Michael Ciriaco) contemplating the meaning of life amidst a serious break up and vicious ride through the after hours mayhem. Eric is 21, his heart is broken and his mind is on fire. His ex-girlfriend (Brea Grant – Daphne from NBC’s Heroes) is still the center piece of his gleefully dysfunctional world. On one dark and surreal evening, Eric stumbles into the lives of dangerous dealers and soft-hearted Mormons, psychotic pretty girls and genuine yet romantically-damaged souls. Circumstance chases him in the most hilarious of ways as his wild voice rifts on the world that surrounds him.

“APPTASTIC! The Weathered Underground works, baby – like OK Computer meets Charles Buckowski and Grand Theft Auto… HR Giger is calling, he wants his subconscious back… Graphics hiss off the screen. Each scene has a glossy, dangerous, memorable look, as if darkly surreal album art has come to life and is looking to you for direction…” – East Portland Blog
