This is a simple but fascinating, often darkly humorous, look at a
small town mystery, and the reaction of its inhabitants, based on the
book of the same name by Poe Ballantine.
The background story: Steven Haataja, a brilliant theoretical
mathematician, takes a position as math professor at a small state
college in Chadron, Nebraska. He seems to have settled in and been
accepted by the locals. Three months later, just before the end of the
semester, he suddenly disappears. No explanation can be found. Some
time later, his dead body is found under bizarre circumstances. The
police are unable to come to a conclusion about his death or identify a
likely suspect if he was, in fact, murdered. The resulting information
vacuum is filled by suspicion and rampant, sometimes strange,
speculation by the people of Chadron.
This is the situation that David Jarrett explores in his documentary.
But instead of limiting himself to the contradictory forensic evidence
relating directly to Professor Haataja's death, he focuses on the town
itself. Interviewing author Poe Ballantine, the local sheriff,
Haataja's fellow professors, and various town residents, he provides an
overview of a quaint, conservative, friendly town, outwardly
conventional but with unknown qualities lurking under the surface. The
only editorializing comes indirectly, through the careful arrangement
and juxtaposition of the interview statements and other footage, but
the technique works extremely well.
Jarrett lets the residents tell the story, but includes information
from other sources which adds a great deal to our picture of Chadron.
For example, he narrates town images with readings from the sheriff's
record of emergency calls. Accounts of, for instance, a request for
help with a werewolf at the roadside, followed up by a call to cancel
police assistance because the werewolf had morphed back into human
form, sends the message that Chadron may not be as ordinary as it
One thing that makes this film intriguing is that the collection of
ordinary, benign, small town people present so many possible suspects
and possible motives - unlikely in every case, but always just barely
