The gore seen on-screen is real. It was obtained from a local meat packaging plant, and is primarily pig's blood and innards. The directors actually show picking it up in the making-of included on the DVD. See more »
When two of the survivors are walking up the road towards the end of the movie one says "I can't wait to get back to Colorado." Then he is hit with an arrow in the back which can be seen from the front sticking out. However, when his friend lays him on the ground there is no arrow in him. See more »
Definitely worth a viewing for the serious horror fan!!
This movie is a rare gem in the movie world. It is the first work of a young film making duo that has actually made it to theatres and now on to DVD with wide distribution. Kudos to the writer's/producers for this remarkable feat in itself!! The movie itself... alright, it's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it is Definitely not the worst either!! (Open Water, Last Winter... come on, those were horrible!!) What we get to see here is the rudimentary offering from a couple of real guys with a common dream. The production is good, the effects are excellent, and the rest of the movie really isn't bad. Sure, there are some "cliché" aspects; crazy amounts of profanity, seemingly pointless nudity, (did I just say that??) and the acting is certainly not 'A-List'... but the end result is a raw work of art that if nothing else leaves us wanting to see where these guys go from here. At the VERY least, one has to appreciate the countless hours of hard work and determination that lead to the reward of this DVD. How many small town folk can say that their movie made the big screen?? SCARCE may be a rough around the edges inaugural offering, but I for sure can't wait for the next one!!
