“THE NOBODIES is a truly unique experiment in low-budget filmmaking--I can't recommend it enough to regional horror fans & filmmakers.” — Hollie Horror, LETTERBOXD
In 1993, Alabama based amateur filmmaker Warren Werner made PUMPKIN, his first feature film. Shot on VHS with a budget of only $600, the movie generated immediate backlash after its premiere at the local civic center. Rumors that Warren and his girlfriend Samantha Dixon engaged in Satanic rituals began to spread throughout town. In the months following the premiere, Warren and Samantha committed suicide. The following year, another group of filmmakers began shooting a documentary about the deaths of Warren and Samantha. The project was never completed and PUMPKIN was never released. THE NOBODIES is Warren Werner’s PUMPKIN, in its entirety, cut together with the remaining documentary footage of the director’s life and death.
