Dark twisted brilliant! Thoroughly enjoyable.
20 October 1999 | by (Santa Monica, California) – See all my reviews

This is a dark twisted and brilliant little film that is quite hard to categorize. It's like a 1940's comic book at first, then things get stranger and stranger as the heroes have their heads cut off and re-animated by a Haitian witch doctor. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable!
