"Turn Me On, Dead Man" Movie

Scheduled for release tomorrow is a short film entitled "Turn Me On, Dead Man."



According to the Frayed Edge Films website, "This is a high concept period piece serving as an allegory for the Paul McCartney 'Paul is dead' conspiracy theory/hoax."



The 22-minute film stars Joe Reegan and David Moscow. The director, Adam Blake Carver opted to create a fictional band with Beatle haircuts. Carver's description of his inspiration for the film reveals that he is not a first generation fan, or even that much of a fan in general. He spoke of discovering the clue of Lennon singing "He's dead, he's dead" when the song "Let It Be" is played backwards. Not many would attribute the vocal of "Let It Be" to Lennon unless he or she truly believed that John was "the man of a thousand voices." There is some evidence that Tyler Knell, the Co-Writer and Co-Producer of the film actually listened to and enjoyed the Beatles music, sometimes even playing it forwards.

The film contains original music by the Bumblebees based on various styles reflecting the time period. I don't think they quite nailed the Beatles sound, but they seem to have all of the tools necessary for a Rutles tribute band. If you go to the backstage section of the film's website, you can see and hear them in action. They state in the music section that they are willing to make music "in exchange for anything" so I would imagine that you could get them to play "Paul Is Dead" music at your next backyard cookout.

Based on the advanced information, I believe the film does have at least one redeeming feature----A Volkswagen.



With a release date of June 18, 2009, I assume that "Turn Me On, Dead Man" can be seen somewhere tomorrow.

Perhaps Iamaphoney has gone about this thing in the wrong way...

Lennon on Let it Be? This should be a hoot.

Perhaps he saw the Rotten Apple video where that is included.
That is the first I heard of it.

I messaged the writer/director a few months ago about the film and that it would make a decent full length motion picture if pursued, didn't get a response.

It will most likely end up on Sundance or IFC as a short. This guy is an up and comer in the industry.

That's why you're not in the film business, Tafultong. IAAP's videos look like the half-assed montages of a kook. There's a reason why the world isn't enthralled with the Rotten Apple series but to each his own. The trailer shows much more adept film-making than IAAP ever did that's for sure.
But hey ,why not withold judgement until someone actually SEES the film?

Is John Lennon alive and well and living in rural Ontario? That's the question an obsessed film undergrad and his reluctant girlfriend set out to answer in Let Him Be , a flawed but earnest and sometimes engaging low-budget feature by Peter McNamee that did a spin through a handful of Canadian festivals last year.

Anonymous said...

If anyone here is a member of the David Icke forum would you kindly inform the ignorant teenagers over there that "Condensed Cream Of Beatles" is NOT an Apple film? For one, the correct title is "Braverman's Condensed Cream Of Beatles" and it's a 16mm short film made by Academy Award Winning filmmaker Charles Braverman who was working for ABC's "Good Night America" program back in the early 70's. It was shown before Geraldo Rivera's interview with John Lennon wherein he talked about The Beatles reuniting. The film still makes the rounds at film festivals and Beatles conventions. It has never been released on video due to a music rights dispute with Apple, who also like to sue Beatles conventions but that's another story.
Charles Braverman went on to direct lots of television programs like Xena Warrior Princess and St. Elsewhere and also directed a short documentary about the Beatlemania stage show (Apple sued that too).

I'm told MikeNL is the source of spreading false information by never doing any research into who was responsible for the short film and putting it up on YouTube. How about some honesty for a change, MikeNL?

If one were to undertake the monumental task of correcting falsehoods spread on the David Icke forum, here, NIR, and elsewhere on the net it would take many lifetimes of work that ultimately would be pointless. Either people learn how to research and ferret out truth from falsehood, or they remain ignorant-- no amount of factual corrections will change that.
