Plot

The small town of Junction is the proud home of The Worlds Largest Stool. John Stevens, a doctoral candidate in roadside attractions, travels to Junction, anxious to authenticate the stool as a true piece of art. Unbeknownst to John, there has been an act of vandalism against the statue of the town’s founder, and Curtis Gorfurter, Junction’s police chief, has concluded it must be the work of a terrorist. John drops off pictures of the stool in town for development and, wishing to have them enlarged, leaves a note, BLOW UP. To Chief Gorfurter this can only mean that the terrorist’s target is the stool. The Chief enacts the Junction Freedom Act and institutes a town color alert, instantly raising it from brick to tangerine. Soon, the Chief, John and the Chief’s sexually frustrated girlfriend are caught in a game where common sense has taken a holiday. Played with all seriousness and a caustic dead pan humor, director Jay Martel’s Terrorists offers a biting satire on fear gone berserk. While laugh out loud funny, it is also a serious statement on how hysteria can take away our civil liberties, even with the best of motives. A serious comedy about life in post-9/11 America.
