Ed Begley, Jr. and Other Celebrities Star in Keystone XL Pipeline Horror Spoof

The ongoing battle over Keystone XL has been riddled with conflict, controversy and fierce opposition. With President Obama set to make a final decision on the tar sands pipeline project soon, the situation could finally be over or just beginning. 

 

To convey the frightening prospect of Keystone XL, True Climate Stories recently released a film spoof starring celebrities Amy Smart, Justin Chatwin, Wendie Malick and Ed Begley Jr. The short, Keystone Horror, is a parody of the 1979 classic Amityville Horror, but instead of a haunted house, the family is threatened by the terrifying pipeline being built just "around the bend."
