Trivia

When comparing scars with Gunn, Poinsettia shows him a bite mark near her right shoulder that she says she got at a Mötley Crüe concert (an in-joke because at the time co-star Heather Locklear was married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee). See more »

Goofs

When Abby arrives at the mansion, Arcane tells her to settle in and they will talk at dinner. However, they are not shown having that dinner until the evening of the following day. No explanation for the 24-hour delay is given in the film and Abby is not shown doing anything during the extra day. See more »

decent and amusing
5 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Amusing flick is decently made but badly acted and the script is kinda sloppy written but this is mildly entertaining and pretty amusing. Horrible make up effects just adds to the charm. All in all i suppose it is worth a look **1/2 out of 5
