Quotes

Dr. Harrison: Those chemicals that were sitting on the shelf were... It was a million to one shot. Some combination of hormones, some combination of vicious substances that made the animals vicious, inhuman... I don't think it could ever happen again, and I thank the great surgeon in the sky that it happened to rats and didn't happen to human beings. Thank the good lord we've got scientific techniquies to get rid of vile, vicious substances like that.

In a word...WOW!
20 January 2004 | by (Midwest) – See all my reviews

I thought this would be just another nudie-cutie with a lot of stock footage to fill in between the nude scenes...I was wrong. This film, at times, looks as if it were a film directed by Stanley Kubrick, Woody Allen, Brian DePalma, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Russ Meyer and Guy Maddin. I know this sounds crazy, but just watch it and you'll see what I mean.

Incredibly stupid plot, beautifully done. The black and white cinematography is great considering the total lack of funds to make a "Hollywood" film.
