Nightmares & Dreamscapes Ep. 04: The End of the Whole Mess (2006)

Nightmares & Dreamscapes Ep. 04: 
The End of the Whole Mess

"Why are people so damn mean?"

That's what Bobby Fornoy wants to know. As a boy, he was something of a genius, bouncing from one overriding obsession to another, and conquering them all. He even built an airplane once, and his older brother Howard filmed its first flight--cementing both of their destinies.

Decades later, Howard (our narrator) is a documentary filmmaker and Bobby is still a boy genius, but he has set his sights on a bigger prize: world peace.  By distilling the strange, calming properties found only in the water of La Plata, TX, and utilizing some crazy scheme involving a volcano, Bobby manages the impossible. He brings peace to the world.

But everything has its downside, and just like every medication, there are, of course, side effects.

The acting is fine, but the plot is a little goofy, and this is only accented by the occasional silly editing tricks (meant to mimic one of Howard's films, I assume).

A passable, but rather uninspiring, view of the apocalypse.
