Trivia

The role of Victor (played by Mike Haboush) was originally Victoria. Victoria was supposed to be the mother of Arthur. See more »

Goofs

Neither Catholicism or any other mainstream branch of Christianity teaches that murdering a sinner absolves them of their sins and permits them to enter Heaven, as Victor repeatedly claims and which Father Rabin appears to endorse. See more »

Quotes

Father Rabin: The congregation is concerned that your brother's homosexuality may rub off on their children and send their souls straight to hell.
Victor Sailes: But Father, my brother has not been to church in ten years. What does it have to do with me?
Father Rabin: It has to do with the fact that the members of the congregation don't want the brother of a gay man in here! They're afraid that you may hold some sort of karma or deep seated evil energy and - and - well, quite frankly, I'm gonna have to ask you to stop offering your ...

I own this movie
16 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh my GOD. I bought this movie and...I...watched...the...whole...thing. . . Okay, it's going to be alright... I'l know I'll be okay in a month or two. Some time soon I hope to be rid of the flash backs. I was going to eat something after the movie but I just can't seem to get up the courage to try and hold any food down at the moment. Bad? Yes bad. Very BAD. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD. Wait, bad doesn't seem to get the message across in quite the right way. Hmm... There isn't a word to describe just how awful.... not awful... Hmm disgustingly horribly casted/acted/filmed/directed/written. Now I don't know what to do but throw it out. Possibly burn it I wouldn't want it to end up at the bottom of an architectural dig a thousand years from now. The worst movie ever since "Hey Happy"
