Did You Know?


When Blackheart first uses a cell phone in the diner, he puts it to his ear up side down, but the next shot, it is right side up without time for a change. See more »


Jimmy Fleming: Now this, this Mortas dude... Do you really think he's still alive? Hmm? And if he was... that'd make him, what... a hundred and ten? Kind of like Merv Griffin.

Surprisingly fun, a real joy!
2 September 2003 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie quite by accident and was drawn in. The character is campy, in a 40's tough (but nice) guy kind of way. His clean cut demeanor, and no nonsense attitude towards good and evil make the Matthew Blackheart character a continuously enjoyable phenomenon. This movie was like a cross between the Guyver and Evil Dead. Campy, but nonstop fun. Don't watch it if you don't like cheese, but those with the taste won't be disappointed.
