Movie Info

A troubled man is trying to decide if his anxieties are real or imagined in this independent psychological drama. In the wake of his breakup with his girlfriend, Liz (Katheryn Winnick), Joe (Desmond Askew) is starting to fall apart. Slowly sinking into a sea of paranoid delusions, Joe is convinced that nearly everyone is out to get him -- in his mind, Liz is sleeping with practically everyone, his analyst (Michael Panes) is in cahoots with Liz in an effort to drive him mad, his boss is circulating a highly unflattering memo about him at work, and his best friend, Alex (J. Richey Nash), has betrayed him. Oh, and there are monsters tracking him, too. But is Joe really paranoid or do his fears have some firm basis in fact? Fabled is the first feature film from Ari Kirschenbaum, who served as director, screenwriter, and editor.

Opening with a portentous quote from Kafka, writer-director Ari Kirschenbuam's Fabled quickly reveals itself to be a hyper-stylized flick, but the glossy sum effect is that of a film student straining for a weightiness he can't pull off.

If watching a guy go slowly insane for 88 minutes sounds interesting to you, Fabled might be right up your alley.

This debut feature from writer-director Ari Kirschenbaum has a lot more style than substance.

Turn tail and stay as far away from this so-called horror movie as you can.

Too superficial to stay with you.
