A UFO is spotted on a snowy day, and someone, or something, emerges from it. A hunt for the otherworldly intruder leads two state troopers to a diner, where they find the counterman and a disgruntled bunch of stranded bus travelers biding their time until the road is clear for them to proceed: the bus driver, a businessman, two couples, “the blonde,” and an old wacky man called “Grandpa.” BUT: there’s one more person in the diner than was on the bus?! Strange occurrences and hostile accusations ensue.
WILL THE REAL
CURIOSITY PLEASE STAND UP?
Yes, this has been a plot summary of the classic Twilight Zone episode “Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up,” and yes, we have gathered the Curiosities and friends to collaborate on a mashup, DIY recreation of it. It’s weird; it has costumes, questionable mise-en-scène, and bad special effects; it’s confusing because we all had to play multiple characters; but most crucially, it’s pretty hilarious. Oh also it’s free. So while you’re in a post-Thanksgiving food coma, why not spend a half hour watching us be ridiculous?
