Movie Info

Director Jay Martel parodies the culture of fear so predominate in post-9/11 America in this satire concerning a bored small-town police chief who makes a bumbling attempt to prove his worth in the War on Terror. A series of unrelated events have convinced the overzealous lawman that a terrorist attack on his community is eminent, and when a graduate student of Middle Eastern pedigree arrives in town to verify the existence of the "world's largest stool" he quickly becomes the sheriff's prime suspect. As the community collapses into a panic, the satisfied chief finally begins to experience the perks of his once-thankless job. When he makes the fateful decision to elevate the town's alert level from brick to tangerine, however, an already tense situation becomes an outright fiasco.more

Audience Reviews for Terrorists

Totally solid satire. It impressively carries the premise for 70 minutes. Brilliant and hilarious portrayal of ignorance, hysteria and how preconceptions shape the way we interpret things. I was very impressed. Great performances. I swear comics are the best actors. One would expect that this guy would only be beat up because he's a total geek. If the actor (Mantzoukas) is a Canadian, I will allow myself to buy myself a Coke.
