In 1993, Alabama based amateur filmmaker Warren Werner shot his first feature film, Pumpkin, on VHS. With a budget of only $600, a cast of friends, family, and unknown talent, the movie premiered at the local civic center and generated an immediate backlash from the community. 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 documentary project was never completed, and Pumpkin was never released. The Nobodies is Warren Werner's Pumpkin, in it's entirety, cut together with the remaining documentary footage of the director's life and death. Written by nobody

Waiting for Kaufman
17 April 2019 | by troma_freekSee all my reviews

This bizarre meta comedy mockumentary splices actual footage from a 1993 film called Pumpkin made by Alabama native and filmmaker Jay Burleson when he was still a teenager with a fictionalized fount footage style horror documentary about the "making of" Pumpkin and it's fictionalized director Warren Werener (played by Jay). A crazy a little film that's clearly influenced by Christopher Guest and American Movie. The Nobodies is a multi-layered, twisted, trashy and sadistic Troma film that sports some surprisingly intelligent humour. Do check it out.
