It really isn't our hero's (Chris Goodwin) day, from being awakened by a piano crashing onto the pavement from the third floor to being mugged on his way to his favourite breakfast place (which is presently burning down by the way), nothing has gone right. It's karma claims his sister (Diana Porter) ... but then of course she dies right in front of his very eyes from a freak choking accident.

Somehow, our hero is led to a fortune teller (Theresa Dern) by the one item his sister has left him, and since he's got nothing to use, he goes in and finds the fortune teller a rather charming lady who can really relate to his story ... of course, until she turns into a demon (Aaron Andrade) who thinks he's got the rights to steal our guy's soul ... but finds out he actually hasn't - which is good for our hero as he gets to keep his soul yet another day, but also bad because whoever has set him on that demon's list has something even worse in store for him ...


A Bad Luck Guy in a Bad Luck Town is really a hoot of a movie - and that's because it doesn't seem to try to be. On the surface, the film's dead serious, mixing film noir mainstays (including first person voice-over narration and a fatalistic approach) with the supernatural (like the demon and the lead's constant hints at being something of a rogue demon hunter), and (apart from Aaron Andrade as the demon maybe) the cast plays it straight, and it's really the situations they are thrown in, the often intentionally stilted mono- and dialogue, the many little details and the very dry approach to everything that make this one really worth your while!
