Trivia

Another day was almost shut down when the lead actor, Lester, was falling in a coma because of diabetic problems which he was forget telling the production company. They had to call the police which was good for another reason: The locals of a trailer park didn't really appreciate the presence of the movie crew filming there, after the police came by they where quiet.

horror with humor ......
30 May 2003 | by (new york city) – See all my reviews

This movie is not your typical horror movie. It has some campy humor and death scenes which can be sort of comical. I personally liked the movie because of its off-beat humor. It's definetely not a super scary movie, which is good if you don't want to be scared and paranoid afterwards. I liked the performance of the hillbilly guy and of Lester... very believable. I think I'm going to dye my hair red like that girl in Scarecrow- very cool! Anyway, overall worth renting for the campy humor and non typical horror experience.
