Trivia

Director Peter Svatek decided to dub out uses of the word "fuck" in the movie because he believed it might help prevent it from receiving an "R" rating. However, since the movie was still too gory and violent, it had to be rated "R" for those reasons. See more »

Goofs

When talking to Capt. Lankett about the disappearance of Dunn's body, Det. Grayson calls Logan Lunar (Spaceport) "Logar Lunar". See more »

I WAS SURPRISED AT HOW GOOD IT REALLY WAS.
8 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

OK, why do people who have soo many Hi expectations about Z flicks. When I bought this movie (for 3.99) I thought "this movie will probably blow", but what the heck, I haven't seen roddy in a flick since "They Live" or "Hell Comes to Frog Town" This one was awesome. I couldn't believe people railed it so. Notice how some of these morons say stupid, idiotic things like........."Oh, the cinematography was horrible" What? who the hell cares, When I'm kicking back with my bass guitar practicing at night with some "Trees" I enjoy watching flicks, been doing this for 10 years so I know an entertaining movie when I see one and this one had me very very entertained. The acting was above average, really and the story line wasn't that hard to understand. Those who mention Logic in their review need some logic.....Logic like "It's a movie Genius". I enjoyed this movie even though people state some very stupid claims. watch it with an open mind and enjoy yourself great late at night when your solo.
