Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Pittsburgh-based filmmaker Brady Lewis makes his feature debut as a writer/director with the retro-styled B-movie Daddy Cool. Shot in various black-and-white and color film formats, this bizarre film borrows plot elements from film noir, science fiction, and horror classics. Transgendered adult female Roxanne Alter (Streeter Nelson) hates her father (John Amplas), a televangelist who used to be a the host of a TV science program. She finds herself becoming obsessed with her mysteriously missing twin sister (also Nelson) and soon she's seeing strange things in her TV set. She tells her story to a therapist, Dr. Talbot (Larry John Meyers), who also happens to be a werewolf. Daddy Cool was shown at the 2003 L.A. Outfest.
