Wry, cynical and full of off-beat humor, Apocalypse, CA is the story of John Parsons and his
ill-fated friends as they prepare for certain death at the hands of a massive asteroid, sex-
inducing drugs, a three-hundred foot giant, and a horde of other unfortunate problems.
Apocalypse, CA is an indie cult film of catastrophic proportions, featuring outstanding visual
effects from artists Ryan Wieber (Ryan vs. Dorkman) and Teague Chrystie (The Pacific) in this
feature film directorial debut by Chad Peter (behind the popular Internet short films, Sex, Drugs
& Natalie Portman & Roleplayed).
Mysterious radio personality and apparent part-time genie, ‘Sassy Boots’ (Elizabeth Sandy)
takes it upon herself to grant John Parsons (Nick Mathis) a few wishes five days before the
world is to be destroyed by an asteroid. Only problem is John’s wishes aren’t exactly calculated,
or even planned – the end result of which is a situation far worse than before.
Accompanied by his brother Hank (Alexander Cardinale), Hank’s friend Renee (Anne
McDaniels) and John’s childhood crush Jacklyn (Erin Bodine), John and friends take the high
road to Palm Springs – otherwise known as the ‘epicenter’ where the asteroid will first strike
Earth. With a ‘bite the bullet’ approach, John & friends learn a little more about life and each
other, all leading up to a wild climax of booze, fantasy, and guns-a-blazin’ desert adventure.
Clocking in at 87 minutes Apocalypse, CA deftly hits its stride as a cult dark-comedy/fantay
in the making.
