Trivia

In an interview, Robert Hutton said that credited co-director Charles Saunders was hired to meet a British government requirement that a certain percentage of British citizens had to be hired on non-British productions filmed in England. Hutton said that although Saunders was always on the set, he had nothing to do with actually directing the picture. See more »

One of the worst ever, but so creative
5 July 1999 | by (Binghamton, New York) – See all my reviews

Absolutely incredible! Not only are there head grafts, but they manage to graft Nostradamus' intact head onto a person's body! Imagine his confusion. Terrible movie, but mercifully short, and so unbelievable it's worth a stare.
