FATAL OUTLET: Ted Hafer’s Cinematic “Triumph”

So the Final Outlet movie is something that I don’t know if anybody outside of Athens or the stars’s circle of friends will either ‘get’ or ‘enjoy’ but whatever, it doesn’t hurt to change things up a bit. Shot throughout the mid-’90s, Fatal Outlet is in dire need of an edit job. However, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have its moments. Ted Hafer was the gent behind this and he personally gave me the copy you are going to watch and even he thought it needed to be redone.

Regardless, the list of Athens ‘celebrities’ starts to get dizzying after the first few scenes. However, I just always thought highly of most of these folks when I first moved to Georgia so maybe that has something to do with it. Paul and Creston from Harvey Milk, Amber from Jucifer and Ballard from Roosevelt/Hayride/ElfPower/Vic Chesnutt’s band appear along with probably the entire working staff of The Grit from ’93-’97 and every regular at the Manhattan from the same time period.

I know, I know, this will probably fly over the head of most, but I thought it best to throw it up here before YouTube wises up and takes it down due to some seedy language.

One aside, this movie rests in its entirety on YouTube and can be watched in 10-15 minute segments at my ‘channel’. I just can’t figure out how to make one vid flow into the next. So deal with it.

Ted Hafer RIP.
