"It's a magical day" are the words scribbled onto the notebook of Dylan's childhood girlfriend as they discover what seems to be a mystical pendant buried under a mushroom in the forest. Years later (thirty or so for Dylan, maybe fifteen for his attractive childhood sweetheart), Dylan has a master's degree in computer science and is an acclaimed novelist, living with his pill-popping girlfriend in a modest apartment. A brutal car accident reignites Dylan's paranormal abilities and fuels his ambition as a covert hacker to expose shocking government secrets. As the spectral presence increases, Dylan's relationship with his current girlfriend crumbles, and the passion between him and his old flame grows more intense, and more dangerous. Fateful Findings delivers a knockout combination of completely absurd actions and reactions, deadpan dialogue from socially inept characters, and ghostly special effects reminiscent of the early '90s children's show Ghostwriter. The bizarre dry humor found in this low-budget, genre-defying film, paired with its penchant for outrageous scenes of violence, may very well create a cult following for the incomparable Neil Breen.
