Worth Watching - Dec 6: Whacky Mystery Team Trailer
One of the films that caught our eye in the midnight section of the Sundance 2009 line-up was Mystery Team. In it, a group of kid detectives struggle to solve a double murder to prove they can be real detectives before they graduate from high school. Yes it sounds quirky and fun, but just wait until you see this trailer. There is no way you'll be expecting this, no matter what you've come up with in your twisted little mind. And do I still want to see it? Hell yes! I can't even place my finger on this; maybe I'll call it a odd combination of Saturday Night Live, Scooby Doo, and Mystery Men? Take a look for yourself…

Pierson, and Dominic Dierkes, the same three kids who start in the film as the three young detectives. Mystery Team is set to premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2009 and will be searching for a distributor at the fest. Stay tuned for more!
