The Conspiracy

Image for The Conspiracy

Making a documentary about zany conspiracy theories, Jim and Aaron meet Terrance (Peterson), a theorist with some far-fetched things to say about the world. Then they find Terrance gone and his apartment ransacked. Is the line between fact and theory blurrier than they thought?


Filmmakers Aaron Poole and Jim Gilbert (playing themselves) are working on a documentary about Terrance (Alan C. Peterson), a loony New York conspiracy theorist who has disappeared. The climax is unsettling, even if the set-up isn’t free from the ranting that gets real-life conspiracy theorists ignored.

A satisfying found-footage spooker.
