Imagine black box theater imitating a B-movie, slasher flick with a killer soundtrack, Mall Goth follows an eponymous folk hero on his journey to attain self-realization and philosophical victory over his moralizing mother, the school principal, his stepdad, and other disturbing incarnations of the dangerous banality of Middle America.
Desperate for cash, Mall Goth begrudgingly takes a job as a city code inspector. At first it seems all that’s at stake is a few misplaced trash cans and a city-owned Oldsmobile Cutlass, but he is soon ushered into benighted corridors of municipal power he could have scarce imagined. Will Mall Goth become a pawn in the mayor’s plan to turn his hometown into a putrescent wasteland of yogurt parlors, crossfit gyms, and over-priced baby clothing stores? Or will he successfully defend the city’s last goth outpost – a dilapidated service station known as ‘the pit’ – from the rising tide of gentrification?
