Trivia

The junk yard seen in the movie is real. Several years prior to the film's production, a yard worker was crushed to death by a piece of heavy machinery which was being driven by another employee to move junk cars. Rumors soon arose that the junk yard was haunted by his ghost. Film production had already begun before anyone involved with the movie "learned" of this legend. As a "precautionary measure", a local priest was asked to perform a blessing on the filming location. In appreciation, the production company made a charitable donation to the priest's church. Nothing out of the ordinary happened at first, but it was soon reported that "unexplained lights" were seen floating around the empty set in the late evening and at night. Also several windows of junk cars mysteriously shattered for no apparent reason during the daytime while film crew members were nearby. The priest returned to perform blessings each morning at sunrise. He also went to the nearby cemetery where the yard worker was buried and anointed the stone entrance-way with holy oil (the act of "Holy Unction"). In the Orthodox Christian tradition of "Almsgiving", food and new clothing was purchased and subsequently donated to several local charities near the junk yard. Oddly, no other "unusual incidents" were reported during the production. See more »

SciFi Channel is scraping the underside of the barrel now...
28 October 2007 | by (GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Just saw this thing last night. Why? I dunno. I was also surfing YouTube and even the bad videos there were better than this waste of my time. This was bad. BAAAAAAD. And not in a cheesy B-movie bad-is-good way.

Bad writing, baaad acting, plot practically straight out of the Friday the 13th Series from the late 80s, but without the convenience of being over and locked in a vault in an hour.

Seemed to me that they'd spent all of the budget on visual effects, leaving no money to pay decent writers and cast this movie with people who could act. With the exception of Richard Moll, they must have found these people at community theater productions in towns where the people have never seen what real acting looks like.

If you thought the 8 Movies to Die For picks were bad, this might make you want to throw your TV out a window.

BTW, why is this still (as of this moment) marked as being in post-production when SciFi has gotten their hands on it?
