Trivia

Never completed due to lack of funds, the film existed only as a rough cut on VHS with burn-in timecode. Bootleg VHS copies of the unfinished work were spread across the US by the junk-punk band "BABYLAND" (members of which had lead roles in the film) while on tour in 1996. Any copies you see without the timecode burn have had a new 1.85:1 matte added after the fact by fanboys. Director William Lorton has commented that an official 30-minute version in after-the-fact 3D and with added CGI characters will be completed in time for its 25th anniversary in 2021, along with a documentary about the absurdly problem-plagued production.

Simply put, it rocks!
29 September 2000 | by (Silicon Valley) – See all my reviews

I can't even begin to describe this movie, named after it's budget, as it's truly an experience in itself. Essential viewing for anyone who can find an opportunity to see this gem.

William Lorton is an extremely talented film-maker and if you have the chance to see any of his films jump for it!
