"Zero Charisma is the nerd movie I've been hoping to see for years." - Devin Faraci, Badass Digest
Preceded by the short film, There's An Octopus In Your Head.
As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip — along with everything else in his life — when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm. (Dir. by Katie Graham & Andrew Matthews, 2013, USA, 86 mins., Not Rated)
There's An Octopus In Your Head
An emotionally masochistic 'pancake master' attempts to unravel the mysteries of his mind by engaging in heavy-metal musical confrontations with the devil. (Dir. by Ari Grabb, 2013, USA, 8 mins.)
