more comedy than horror but nice effects
5 June 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is a weird movie, it isn't a horror but it do says what the title says, it is a revenge by a reporter being so-called killed but he survives the toxic waist and returns as a deformed human, does it rings a bell, Toxic Avenger anyone? The two main leads, David Scammell and Kathryn Boese are unknown actors and disappeared in obscurity after this flick as almost all actors in this feature. I said it before, it isn't a horror even as the sleeve shows gore. It is more a comedy with a lot of one-liners and funny situations. But the movie became hunted down due the director Craig Pryce better known for so many series he directed, this was his first full feature. It do contains a lot of really good effects and some are indeed nasty and gory. A reason why some horror aficionado's do hunt for this rather easy to find on PAL and NTSC vid.
