The Conspiracy – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 21

The Conspiracy

The Conspiracy is a mockumentary (I will never like that word) about two documentary filmmakers making a documentary about conspiracy theories and themselves getting drawn in to the world of conspiracies. More thriller than horror I still found myself engaged by the movie. I can’t say it provided any great surprises, but there was certainly a sense of building tension throughout. I don’t know if Jon Ronson’s book Them: Adventures With Extremists was a source of inspiration for The Conspiracy, but having read it previously added to my appreciation of the movie. In particular the book’s sections on the Bilderberg Group and Bohemian Grove. The movie’s well worth watching if you have any interest at all in conspiracy theories or conspiracy theorists. Or, for that matter, if you like a good thriller.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
