Marty’s just a regular kid. He’s into horror movies, he’s writing a graphic novel with his best friend and his favorite hang out is an abandoned haunted house. Oh, and his big brother, Steve (Ethan Philbeck) is a gas mask wearing serial killer, who keeps heads in a bowling bag in his closet. Their parents, played by Phyllis Munro and Louie Lawless, are clueless as to what’s going on in their own house. When Marty (Gavin Brown) gets beaten up at school, Steve decides to take care of the bully his way. Marty’s world is about to change forever.
Along with Todd Rigney, the author of the 2004 novel by the same name, Scott Schirmer co-wrote the script and directed ‘Found’.
Let me get this out of the way, I do NOT condone the racist subject matter in ‘Found’ in any way. That being said, the movie has some good aspects. The story between the two brothers was touching, in a way. The story line was something new, that’s always a plus. Gavin Brown (Marty) is the real talent in this movie. He did a great job, which is impressive for a kid his age. Ethan Philbeck played his role as Steve, the serial killer, a little to well, if you know what I’m saying. All in all, ‘Found’ was pretty good, minus the racism, which plays a small part in the plot.
‘Found’ is now out on DVD.
