The Soda Machine
A late night trip to the laundromat leads a young man into a world of trouble – and the gateway to cyber/fetish hell…
Ok kids, you ready for some fun?
A night at the laundromat, could there be anything more boring?
Johnson (a perfectly appropriate name, as it turns out) just wants to clean his uniform before work in the morning. To pass the time, he decides to buy a soda from the vending machine. When the machine steals his dollar, that’s when things start to go a little screwy.
First, he tries to get his dollar back from the old man who works there. When that doesn’t work, Johnson starts to go to work on the soda machine. Well, the old man doesn’t take too kindly to someone messing around with his woman. Wait, what? Yes, it seems the old man and the soda machine (no relation to the old man and the sea) have a special… relationship.
What follows is a battle royale involving an axe, four quarters, multiple bloody stumps, and some dismembered…well, I’ll let you discover that part on your own. But ultimately, it is a story about love. Don’t believe me? Be sure and read to the surprise ending and tell me I’m wrong.
The Soda Machine is a quirky, off-the-wall action-comedy in tradition of Kung Fury, Turbo Kid, and pretty much everything Michael Ironsides has ever been in. This is the kind of film that festival goers will not only remember, but actually want to see again. Full of wit, grit, and enough blood to make Tarantino blush, it is a potent flick with viral potential. Perfect for a filmmaker looking to make a memorable… splash!
Budget: Medium. One central location, the laundromat. Biggest costs will be blood, clean-up, and…um…prosthetics.
