The Tribeca Film Festival will not be short on any films offering sombre, sober drama but if you're hitting the fest and looking for something a little off the beaten path, then "Freaky Deaky" might just be the answer. We're happy to unveil three clips from the film based on the book by Elmore Leonard that offers a twisty, funny crime tale.

The story picks up with Chris Mankowski (Billy Burke) whose first day on the sex crimes unit of the Detroit Police Department does not go well. Not only does he fall for the first person to report an assault to him, he’s suspended for investigating the rich, powerful and completely drunk Woody Ricks (Crispin Glover). Chris takes matters into his own hands, only to discover there are all kinds of people trying to get something -- money, revenge, or both -- from Woody. From Woody’s former Black Panther nursemaid Donnell (Michael Jai White) who’s trying to work his way into the will, to Woody’s own yuppie brother Mark (Andy Dick), to sexy and dangerous '60s-radical-turned-romance-novelist Robin Abbot (Breanne Racanno), who blames Woody for snitching on her and her partner (Christian Slater). Chris will have to navigate a mine field to get justice outside the law.

The scenes below first show off an underground showdown with Chris Mankowski that doesn't go as planned, a quick look at Mark who seems to be in a scheme (or getting schemed) by Robin and finally, a totally out-to-lunch Woody who is attempting to draft his will. If it seems a bit over the top, that's because it is, as the film apparently is not too far away from the tone of "Black Dynamite," embracing and sending up genre conventions all at the same time.

"Freaky Deaky" will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday, Aprill 22nd at 3:30 p.m. at the SVA Theater 1. Update: Garage clip removed by request of the filmmaker.
