Marty (Gavin Brown) is a nerdish circa 12 year-old who loves nothing more than watching horror movies and making up/designing a graphic novel with his best friend Dave (Alex Kogin) ... so of course he's bullied at school, to a point that even Dave turns away from him.

Then Marty finds a severed head in his big brother Steve's (Ethan Philbeck) closet, later another one, then another one. Marty is deeply disturbed, that's for sure, but he doesn't squeal on his brother, he even romantisizes him, actually, as if he was one of these supernatural killers out of the slasher movies he loves to watch ... as a matter of fact, Marty is too young to see that all of Steve's victims are the results of racist hate crimes he has committed to compensate for the bullying he himself had to endure. But as dangerous as Steve may be, he looks after his young brother, and when Marty is bullied - and by a black kid (Edward Jackson) too -, the bully's head ends up in the closet before long. Of course, Steve finds out that Marty has found out about his "hobby" eventually ... but even though he now poses a threat to him, Steve could never hurt his young brother, everyone but him.

Eventually, Marty takes idolizing his brother too far when he fights back against a boy (Adrian Cox-Thurmond) only verbally, and he actually almost kills him. Marty is severely punished by his parents (Phyllis Munro, Louie Lawless), who are too blind to see the real roots of all evil, for it ... and now Steve's hatred gets really unhinged, and the terror hits home ...

 

At first, this coming-of-age story looks like your typical bitter-sweet genre fodder, but it quickly takes a turn for the worse (and I mean that in a good way): Basically, Found is a film that gets more disturbing by the minute, and while in the beginning you still think you can figure out what's going on, you'll probably never guess the downward spiral you've gotten yourself onto. It probably totally helps that the director really knows his horror (including trash horror, as evidenced in the [fake] movies Marty watches) but also knows restraint, and that he's versatile enough to never fall into the trap of glamourizing the innocence of youth and the like, instead he's trying to tell a real story.

In all, pretty disturbing - but in a good way!
