Trivia:
Screenwriters Coby Recht and Iris Recht set their screenplay in 1984 because of the Orwellian themes in the story. Director Menahem Golan decided the year was too close to the era in which they were living, so he pushed back the setting to 1994.See more »

Continuity: At the beginning of the movie, the "crowd running" scene to the auditorium changes from day to night and then back to day again.See more »

Audaciously Wonderfully Bad!, 15 November 2003
Author: rube2424 from New York, USA

Probably made as a "please God, let what happened to ROCKY HORROR

happen to us!", project, THE APPLE is so audacious, so over the top, so

totally awful that it is simply wonderful. The songs are cheesy, the

acting horrendous, the costumes nightmarish, the concept bizarre etc.,

etc., but when all those negatives are put together, the result is a

positively guilty pleasure to top all guilty pleasures. Please, someone,

release a letterboxed DVD of this film so that all its rocky horrors

squeezed onto the small screen can be seen in all their garish terrible/wonderfulness.......
