Armando De Razza,
In the final scene, Aijón offers his script to the famous Spanish producer Santiago Segura (played by himself). In Segura's office there are posters of the saga of Torrente, even there are posters of non-filmed sequels. See more »
This movie was a complete letdown, since the mid 90's Spanish cinema, has had a great impact on the world, whether it's Almodovar's thought provoking award winning films to cult movies by directors like Alex de la Iglesia (Day of the Beast, Accion Mutante, La Comunidad), this movie attempts to be the latter, problem is, movies get cult status because they're fun, interesting, or have some type of alternative edge, in other words you don't set your goals to create a cult movie, it becomes one on its own merit, this obviously was a poor attempt at formulating one, and boy does it fail. A way to not spoil it and sum it up is to simply call the script juvenile, this is the kind of movie you and your friends would write in grade school, but it does not actually deserve to be put on celluloid. First of all if you're looking for a Romero type zombie romp, then forget about it right now, what they call zombies here, can talk, walk, run, think, and pretty much do everything that normal people do, except they are all under the spell of a mad scientist (if this sounds like a terrible horror comic you see in bargain bins, you're getting close). But that's not all, on top of it, this actually tries to pass itself off as an honest portrayal of the film-making process and a coming of age story, complete with afternoon special ending, OH THE HORROR!!!
So to sum it up:
1. Not funny 2. Very corny 3. Not scary or gory 3. Forced "edgy" dialogue 4. Mediocre uninspired acting
So yeah, as posted before the only thing worth watching is Santiago Segura, who should stop doing favors in the future.
Watch anything by Alex de La Iglesia, anything ELSE with Santiago Segura or even Airbag even though it makes little sense.
