I'd like to disagree with the previous negative post. I thought this movie was campy intelligent fun! (I especially liked Ellen, the disembodied nagging head in the sink)
In this day of predictable and formulaic big studio releases, here is an independent film in the purest sense of the word. The director did NOT shoot the film in Mexico, but kept production right here in Los Angeles (as we wish more filmmakers would do). He did NOT do all the computer FX himself - but rather his team included his brother Robert, who has an extensive CG resume including X-Men 2, The Chronicles of Riddick and Crouching Tiger. And as for the nudity, anyone who is familiar with independent film distribution would realize that the toplessness was NOT a desperate act by the director to keep our attention, but followed the "rules" for foreign distribution (must have breasts in the first X minutes).
So lighten up, make some popcorn and enjoy an original film for a change!
