More than 18 years after David Lynch’s cult TV series, Twin Peaks, limped off the air, fans are finally going to get a second cup of damn good coffee with Twin Twin Peaks, a fan film shot on the show’s original locations in Washington state. Picking up where the series left off (Agent Cooper possessed by Bob, etc.), the episode is based on a 40-page, fan screenplay that made the rounds through fandom a few years ago.
Twin Twin Peaks might provide loyal followers with some answers and a proper sense of closure (something Lynch and co-writer Mark Frost never deigned to provide), but if it follows series tradition, it’ll just toss out more perplexing, unanswered questions instead. On the other hand, a Twin Peaks fan film really can’t suck—considering the series’ stilted style and how God awful the plot was by the end, amateur acting and writing will still be a marked improvement (and I say that as someone who doggedly sat through every first-run episode to the miserable end). The filmmakers hope to debut the flick at this year’s Twin Peaks Festival (July 24-26, 2009), but here’s the trailer in the meantime. I wish ‘em the best of luck, but in the meantime, now I’m hungry for pie.
