Direct to video has a poster child, this is it.
7 November 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The homeless are used as human prey in a deadly game. The game masters are the heads of evil syndicates. Nazis and Ninjas and Soldiers of Fortune are the hunters.

I worked on this film as sound effects editor, it was my first film. We had 2 weeks to cut the effects and foley for this film. You can imagine the quality of the work at that point....
