About the Movie
Star Leaf is a sci-fi thriller about three friends who search for a forest of extra-terrestrial marijuana hidden deep in the Olympic Mountains and find much more than they bargained for. Starring Russell Hodgkinson and Julian Gavilanes of Sy-Fy's Z-Nation, the adventure begins when Tim (Tyler Trerise) introduces his girlfriend Martha (Shelby Truax) and his Afghanistan war buddy James (Gavilanes) to the legendary Star Leaf, anticipating an out-of-this-world high and the chance to cure James's PTSD. Things start to get strange when a forest ranger (Richard Cranor) mysteriously shows up at their late-night campfire with tales of alien visitors and odd animal behavior in the forest. And when Tim and Martha break the Star Leaf "code of conduct," the evil aliens guarding the plant begin to stalk them. Reality, memory, and fantasy blur for James, whose flashbacks of the war mix with his sense of the current danger. Heedless of James's warnings, Tim and Martha walk into a trap, and James must fight for all their lives against his own inner demons and even larger forces from beyond.
Star Leaf for the win!
What a fantastic experience! Perfectly blending entertainment and purpose, Star Leaf had us laughing and left us with a thirst to change the world!
I was VERY surprised by how much I really, really liked this movie! I’m not even a typical fan of sic-fi or horror so when I watched the film with some friends I was doubtful, but if I’m being honest I was actually blown away. I didn’t expect the movie to be funny, which it totally is! Of course it’s also creepy and super scary…one part made us all jump, pretty much everything you want from a horror film. I had a family member in the military so PTSD is something I’m familiar with and the plot line really hit home. I had no idea that PTSD was going to play such a big part in this film. Kuddos to the writers for keeping us on the edge of our seats. The cast was GREAT…the girl who plays Martha is HYSTERICAL and the actor who portays James is an incredibly talented actor. BUY it and enjoy…I have a strong feeling you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was!
Loved this film. Amazing aerial shots of the Olympic mountains. Interesting characters and an original narrative. Creepy aliens popping up in the forest. The highlight for me was Ranger Dave- funny and charming, he really brings it home.
