"It is November of 1960 and retired theremin player Sid Kottler has been living alone in his over-sized home for the past 13 years. His severe case of anthropophobia prevents him from entertaining the company of anyone... or even the slightest of human interaction. When he awakens one morning with an unforgettable character he recognizes from a very recent encounter of sorts, he realizes that he may not be alone anymore. In fact, Sid may even play party host to an ensemble of friends... but not by invitation".

"An Idle Mind Is The Devil's Playground"
A Film Review by Spats White
"An Idle Mind Is The Devil's Playground is an entertaining and well made film with solid performances, a sharp screenplay, distinctively fine music, and award worthy cinematography. The quality of the finished image and audio is so sparkling and compelling that they rival the crystal clarity of the old original 35mm negative television productions from TV's Golden Age -- The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Outer Limits, to name just a few -- the very era that this film is set in and salutes so lovingly. It is a unique film and well worth the attention of any audience.
Rod Serling, creator and dominant writer of The Twilight Zone, was my friend, TV co-host, college writing professor and mentor. The film successfully reeks of that era and style and, knowing him as well as I did, I think I can safely assume and assert here that Mr. Serling would have totally appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed this motion picture".

Note: Mr. White retired from film critic service 40 years ago. He has turned down major film reviews for decades.

We are very honored that he is openly endorsing this film.
