Trivia

The movie was originally shot with no computer effects for the monster, just an actor in a rubber suit. The final cut was deemed not scary enough, and all the computer effects for the creature were added. See more »

Goofs

During the escape attempt, Tina handcuffs the Molotov cocktail to the back of the monster's head. In one shot, the bottle falls to the ground. In the next shot, it is back on the creature's head. See more »

Quotes

Lisa: Monica, I need to pee.
Monica: Just hold it in.

So bad it's painful
10 June 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Poor Nicholas Brendon. While his other Buffy castmates get to do theatrical films he is stuck in this straight to video abomination so awful everyone involved should actually be ashamed. The monster is particularly embarrassing--a computer generated thing that looks like it stepped out of a video game and almost never interacts with the live actors, making it seem even more fake. The idea of a killer Pinata might have offered some campy fun if the thing actually looked like a Pinata. The only film I've seen recently that was comparably dreadful was House of the Dead, which I actually walked out of when I was foolish enough to pay and see it in a theater. Movies like this really make you long for the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
