Trivia

During the scene in which the soldiers were shown pornographic movies in the lab, the clip of the Japanese women was taken from 'Imprint', the 13th episode of the first season. Since it was decided that 'Imprint' was too graphic for television so was not aired, this was the first time it was seen in the US before being released on DVD. See more »

Goofs

(at around 45 mins) The "Stewart, British Columbia, October" text screen is supposed to say "November" since the other texts are monthly, the previous one was already "October", and the next one is "December". See more »

To the point
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A virus starts affecting men worldwide--they're struck with religious fever and brutally attack and kill any woman close by. Story focuses on a family trying to cope with it--Father Alan (Jason Priestley) and his father in law (Elliott Gould) are scientists trying to combat the problem and Alan's wife (Kerry Noonan) and daughter (Brenna O'Brien) may be in danger...

Some people might immediately call this is misogynistic--it DOES show graphic and VERY bloody killings of many female. But this is never shown in a comedic or OK way--it's presented as sickening and as horrifying as it is. The ultimate solution to this all actually makes sense (for a horror film). The acting is great--Priestley and Noonan especially are impressive. This is nowhere near as good as director Dante's season 1 offering "The Homecoming" but it still is a good strong little movie.
