Trivia

Narrator Egon Hoegen is very well known in Germany as the voice of the education series Der 7. Sinn (1966) which gives tips for correct behavior in road traffic. By using this voice at the beginning, it gives the feeling of an authentic safety video for people raised in Germany. See also trivia for Starship Troopers (1997). See more »

This absolutely rocks!
20 May 2005 | by (Manchester, England.) – See all my reviews

A couple of weeks ago I saw this film as part of my forklift truck training. I thought it was going to suck when it first started up and the cheesy music came on but before I knew it, there were limbs and blood flying everywhere!

It's really really gory. But sort of 'Troma' gory, if you've seen Toxic Avenger or Terror Firmer, you'll know what I'm talking about.

The whole film is just a non-stop killing-fest. People being skewered on the forks, hands being severed, a knife jamming into someone's head and some guy getting cut in half by a sheet of metal. All makes for a VERY entertaining film.

But this is DEFINITELY NOT for people with weak stomachs!

But if you love your gore, I say what are you waiting for? SEE IT! Even if it is only 10 minutes long...!
