Storyline

Ruled by the evil Satoris, an ancient cult of Canadian wrestlers, the Ziox, are bent on world domination. Instrumental to their plan is a map to the ancient Ziox cult idol, recently discovered by a young boy, Troy. When the Ziox invade his home to recover the map, he flees and ends up in the bed of a passing pickup truck, driven by Rowsdower. Rowsdower and Troy become friends, and together search for the lost idol before the Ziox can claim it and take over the world. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Trivia

Due to the film's small budget and lack of mass distribution, none of the actors were paid for their roles. See more »

Goofs

Shortly after Troy jumps into Rowsdower's truck, there' a shot of it heading down a gravel road. The left driver's side headlight (of a total of four) is missing. In the next shot, as the truck pulls to a stop in a field, all headlights are intact. See more »

Quotes

Aunt Betty: You found that - Troy, you had no business there.
Troy McGreggor: My father is my business.
Aunt Betty: Oh Troy, I'm sorry. I only want you to forget him, to carry on with your own life.
Troy McGreggor: Am I like him?
Aunt Betty: Yes. You're very much like him.

Boring

Boring, stupid, and numbing, this film shows why not everyone is given a camera and told to shoot a film. Besides some rookie mistakes like continuity and editing glitches, think brainless, pointless, worse-than-Knight-Rider action sequences with long, boring tracts of film in between. I'm having trouble figuring out what the dumbest part of the movie is---is it the ``Good thing this grappling hook was sitting here on the ground'' moment? The fact that the main character is called ``Zap Rowsdower?'' Or perhaps it's that these evil cultists carry scimitars (in Canada, no less) that look like they were made in a high school metal shop in about 20 minutes? Every human being has a story to tell; tragically, Greidanus's was about Zap Rowsdower.
