I knew it would be terrible at the time.
3 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was a nightmare to work on.

I was recruited to work as a special visual effects artist on this film after several other people had quit. They had good reason to quit.

I had previously only worked as talent, the visual effect stuff was just a side hobby I had tinkered with when doing models and costuming.

The conditions were terrible, the story a joke and I had to constantly fight with the people I worked with over getting the right equipment and materials and being allowed to do my job correctly.

The visuals they called for directly conflicted with the story and changed on a daily basis, right along with the daily breakdown in equipment to do them.

I was shorted on pay, had things stolen by senior crew people, and was not credited for my work. The director had the nerve to send me a copy of his vanity press biography as "additional compensation".

There is not enough money in the world to get me to work with either Mahaffey or Ellis ever again.

The only good part was working with Trevor Goddard and Roddy Piper.
