Trivia

The opening swamp scene of the movie was originally intended to take place in a marsh in the south of Germany. When the location fell through it was decided that it would be more in keeping with the film's often self-deprecatory style of humor to change the setting of the scene to a kiddie pool in someone's backyard.

Real Underground Horror
25 January 2008 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is cutting edge, avant-garde, underground, horror film-making. Scream XI this is not. Neither is this the next installment from Hollywood's digest of McHorror films. These are original pieces of art—like raw sugar cane. Like all things new and original there will be resistance to fully appreciate the films on this anthology. However, this is a compliment. Many of the short films in the anthology could easily be expanded into feature length films. There is no doubt many of the films will generate controversy and criticism. It's apparent the executive producers enjoyed successfully (unlike Cloverfield's gimmick) the act of unprocessed cinema. It is true that a 100 million dollar fat-cat budget would smooth out the edges—but then again look at Kevin Costner's Waterworld. One can even surmise that the producer's were satirizing the over-inflated, unnecessary budgets of Hollywood. There are hilarious flying fake bats on strings and an obviously unplugged microphone that the host absurdly pretends to talk into throughout. Alas, my only fear is that after the success of this anthology the producers may regress into another (lost soul) John Carpenter.
