After the opening few minutes I was really getting the feeling that I'd made a mistake to watch this - the low budget was very obvious. But then it got going and I was slowly drawn in to the film until I no longer noticed the low budget. Maybe the quality got better as the film progressed, or maybe it just became so involving that it didn't matter, but by the end of the film I was thinking "this is a damn good film!".
The low budget is obvious in the makeup, some of the characters are really too clichéd and there are continuity goofs, but the overall package is a very good film. Certainly comparing it to a big budget movie, it stands up very well just on the strength of the story and the acting alone.
That the director made this on a $15,000 is truly staggering. Hollywood could learn some lessons from this guy in an age of multimillion dollar flops
