Goofs

Spencer St. Claire's flashback, which is supposed to be set during a snowstorm appears to be filmed in the middle of fall. The color tint, brightness and contrast are tuned up to a degree where everything appears white, however, you can clearly see Spencer crawling through leaves instead of snow. See more »

Quotes

Station Attendant: Sonny boy, I make it a practice never to interfere with folks when they're bound and determined to get someplace. Cause no matter what I say, they're bound to get there, and they're bound to get what they went there for. May not make much sense to you; makes sense to me.

Absolute Worst Film Of All-Time! Watch It And See!
26 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I'm 27 years old. I saw this movie when I was........well........probably about 10. Still to this day I consider this the worst movie I've ever seen in my life! I remember seeing it at the video store and thinking it was so cool. The box art was of a claw ripping through the front of the box. I pestered my dad to get it every time we went to the video store, but he refused (obviously wiser than I). Then, for my birthday party that year, my friends and I talked him into letting me rent it to watch at the sleepover. I was so excited at the prospect of watching Shriek of the Mutilated. Boy were we in for a treat, I thought, mesmerized by the terrifying box art! Yeah, right........

We got it home, popped it in the VCR, watched it, and although I don't remember all that much about it, I still remember it as the worst movie ever made. I often watch movies I loved back then when I was a kid, and am usually disappointed at how bad they are.....certainly not the wondrous films I remembered. So I figure, if my friends and I thought this movie was horrid back then, I can only imagine how bad it would be these days to watch, LoL.

Anyway, was just fooling around on the internet tonight and thought of it........so I had to look it up. Thought I'd post this if any of you are interested....or thinking about watching this piece of garbage, LoL.

For those of you that have seen this atrocity, I'll leave you with these words, which I still remember (and laugh about) all these years later.....

WHITE MEAT OR DARK?!?!?! (watch it and this can become a lifelong joke for you too!!)
