I'll be honest, this was so bad I couldn't finish watching it - and I've sat through all of MY DATE WITH DREW, which should give you some idea of how poor this is. Looking at this, like DREW, I just wonder why this is on the IMDb. It doesn't look like a real movie at all. It's got one actor I recognise from the TV version of DUNE in it, but he's not very good and the rest of the cast look like friends of the director. Result? A badly acted badly directed barely written film that that looks like a home movie shot on a home video camera.

The biggest surprise is that there's a sequel listed, THE BONE HUNTER. No user comments, no release info, which makes me wonder if it was even made. Because after seeing this, you can't see why anyone other than Max Bialystock would invest in it.
