I recently was lucky to be invited to a screening of this otherwise unreleased movie. And what I got is what I could expect from its title: a funny, mindless, no-budget movie that's really proud of its humble origins. People looking for something serious or some production values must stay away of it (alas, what could you expect from a movie made from stock film from several shootings, including some from the spanish Z guru Jess Franco?). First time director Temboury offers a post-modern product: he is recreating his Z-movie heritage, and delivering a movie for fans of the genre. Of course the movie is technically very poor (except some nice touches like the credits, wich are impressive), but Temboury manages to make the viewer forget about these shortcomings thanks to his great sence of humor and his obvious knowledge of filmmaking language.
