In a small town in upstate NY, Willem Koda, a retired geologist and alien conspiracy theorist, struggles to find an audience for his controversial beliefs. After befriending Flossie, a local waitress and aspiring actress, and Todd, an amateur filmmaker living off his Uncle's inheritance, Willem decides to make a low-budget movie about his life, re-enacting scenes from his crumbled marriage and his violent encounters with aliens while working for the US Government. As the movie gets made, Flossie and Todd watch as Willem confronts his past and grows increasingly paranoid about his future.

Critic Reviews for Man Underground

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Scrupulously avoiding scenes that would require expensive special effects or elaborate sets, the filmmakers employ a straightforward dramatic style, concentrating their efforts on creating believable characters instead.

July 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The oddball premise and quirky characters ultimately aren't enough to lift up "Man Underground," a sci-fi-infused indie drama that puts the "alien" back in alienation.

July 13, 2017 | Full Review…

What could have easily become a sci-fi oddity becomes a character study, and it's the characters and not their belief in UFOs that resonate here.

July 27, 2016 | Full Review…

Man Underground shot for seventeen days with a budget of only $35,000. For that money and time, it looks amazing, and goes far solely on the charm of its surprisingly capable four-person cast.

July 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Will disappoint viewers expecting a sci-fi thriller but succeeds as a subtle examination of the human need for connection.

July 12, 2017 | Full Review…

The journey is ultimately as sweetly funny as it's emotionally tragic. Rather than evolve, everyone here learns to embrace who they are.
