Jason Lee (Vanilla Sky) headlines an all-star cast, including Jason Mewes (Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back), Renee Humphrey (Mallrats) and Carmen Lee (Chasing Amy) in Drawing Flies, a hilarious comedy about insanity!

Five twenty-something slackers are living the good life. All play and no work suits these kids just as fine as they live comfortably off of their government welfare checks. But when their lives are turned upside down after the system cuts them off from their "easy money", it's out of the city and off to the country as they embark on a camping trip deep in the wilderness. As they head further into the woods, their fearless leader Donner (Lee) heads further from sanity, when what was thought to be a camping trip is actually a fatuous search for the legendary "Bigfoot" monster! Now they are lost, scared, at odds with one another as they soon realize that if the woods don't kill them, they just might do it to themselves.

Known to many as the "lost View Askew film," Drawing Flies is the brainchild of Producer, Writer, Directors Matthew Gissing and Malcolm Ingram (Tail Lights Fade) from Executive Producers Scott Mosier an Kevin Smith (Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) and features cameo appearances from some of your favorite View Askew regulars.

The key to getting these is the short animation of bigfoot running across the screen whenever you click on Special Features or Chapter Selection on the main menu screen...

Clip #1 - Can be found by clicking on Special Features and then when the bigfoot animation plays hit your Chapter Forward button. This clip will also play if you click on Chapter Selection and hiting your Chapter Back button during the animation.

Clip #2 - Can be found by clicking on Special Features and then when the bigfoot animation plays hit your Chapter Back button.

Clip #3 - Can be found by clicking on Chapter Selection and then when the bigfoot animation plays hit your Chapter Forward button.

Clip #4 - The easiest way to get this last clip is to make your way to Clip #2 and then while that is playing hit your Chapter Back button again. Alternatively if you watch the Deleted Scenes and hit Chapter. Forward right at the end you will also be taken to this clip.
