Goofs

When the police pick up Bridey at the Drive-in theater there is an Edsel parked there. The movie is set in 1955, but the first model year for the Edsel was 1958, so there would not have been any available until the fall of 1957. See more »

A disaster.
5 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

A few eye-filling bikini shots of Sherilyn Fenn are not reason enough to sit through this self-conscious, forced, artificial, illogical film noir "homage". Roughly half the dialogue is gibberish in desperate need of translation; perhaps the characters were inventing a new form of space language or something. It's one of those rare films where absolutely NOTHING works, and after about 20 minutes you'll be ready to give up on it. (*)
