Can you keep a secret? There are still filmmakers out there willing to tell stories just for the sake of irreverent fun…even if it means disregarding political correctness and risking victimization to today’s cancel culture. Such silliness comes from writer/director Richard Elfman and what appears to be a rather large contingent of Elfmans…Elfmen (sic) in sci-fi, horror, thriller, clown comedy Clowns, Gangsters, Aliens and Geeks.

Eddy Pine (Bodhi Elfman) is a jaded actor, who’s depressed after his television series was canceled recently. After almost getting run over by a pair of blonds, who are in actuality green-alien-controlled avatars manipulated by X-box controllers from the mothership, Eddy and the girls engage in a three way. As would happen in any alien ménage à trois, Eddy immediately poops a rather sizeable dark obelisk from his anus.

“…Eddy poops a rather sizeable dark obelisk from his anus.”

Making matter worse for Eddy, the obelisk is the key to the universe according to the green aliens and the newly arrived Clown Emperor Beezel-Chugg (Verne Troyer). Both need to get their hands on the obelisk in order to rule the universe. And the chase begins, starting with a large clown sent to track down Eddy Terminator-style.

Eddy finds help in an assortment of odd characters including his trans-sister Jumbo (Steve Agee), Professor von Scheisenberg (French Stewart), and the professors two tall blonde Swedish assistants Helga Svenson (Rebecca Forsythe) and Inga Svenson (Angeline-Rose Troy). Each one having his/her own particular set of skills to solve the mystery.

"…proudly reeks of B-Movie in its production, performances, child-like potty humor."
