Louise Watson: I'm going on tour this year until I get a record contract, then I'm going to make a video. Then they're going to make a video of us and we're going to be famous. Then Mommy's going to come back and live with us. And when I grow up I'm going to do solo projects and get married to someone famous but I'm not sure who exactly.
Mr. Skin (A.K.A. Satan): Who told you all this?

Based on location of filming..
8 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I actually know the township where this movie was filmed the first 15 minutes or so. The place is called Virginiatown and it is in Ontario, they also filmed in Larder Lake, Ontario.

I decided to watch the movie(we have it on display where I work) and it is surprising how the place has changed. We also even have the barber chair and all his equipment that was owned by the actual owner of the barber shop, who appeared as a customer in the movie.

Even though this movie fits the typical "weird" movie, I actually liked it, but then again, I am a fan of those old 80's style movies. The only thing I have to say negative about it is that I don't recommend it to kids, this movie still contains things that should not be seen at a younger age.
