Conspiracy is a 2008 action/drama film released direct-to-video on March 18, 2008. The film is influenced by the classic western film noir thriller Bad Day at Black Rock (1955),[1] which itself was an adaptation of a short story "Bad Time at Honda" by Howard Breslin.

Whilst Bad Day at Black Rock tells the story of wounded WWII vet John J. MacReedy, Conspiracy revolves around William "Spooky" Macpherson, a disabled special operations marine wounded during combat operations in Iraq. When MacPherson decides to visit a friend on a ranch in the southwest, he discovers that his friend has disappeared, and no one will acknowledge that he ever lived there.

The film is directed by Adam Marcus and stars Val Kilmer and Jennifer Esposito. It was filmed in Galisteo, New Mexico.[2]
