Twisted, apocalyptic satire, THIS IS NOT A MOVIE envisions the end of the world through the bi-polar mind of a strung-out pop-culture addict.

Edward Furlong (Terminator 2) stars as Pete Nelson, a depressive loser waiting out the end of days in a Las Vegas hotel room. Suffering from selective amnesia, he can't remember large swathes of his past, and resorts to interrogating his multiple personalities (and a local ghost) for clues to his own existence. His search is continually interrupted by surreal hallucinations and bizarre fake movie trailers (like Reagan Force). Pete's quixotic journey leads him to an ascetic writer living in the desert (Peter Coyote), who ultimately turns both of their worlds upside down.

With a jagged, atmospheric score from Slash (formerly of Guns 'N' Roses), THIS IS NOT A MOVIE is joltingly psychedelic experience you won't soon forget.

DVD Extras Include:

  • Deleted Scenes
  • Interviews with Peter Coyote and Slash
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Stills Gallery
