Trivia

In the opening minutes of the film, there is a Post-It note on the bulletin board that reads "Total Protonic Reversal." This is undoubtedly a reference to "Ghostbusters," as that is what happens when the streams from their proton packs are crossed. See more »

Crazy Credits

Includes the following humorous variation on the standard legal disclaimer at the end of the credits: "The events, characters and firms depicted in this motion picture are fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or actually dead, or to actual firms is purely coincidental." See more »

Huge waste of time
16 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Given that this film has highly fair ratings on here, I decided to give it a shot. Right from the get-go the bad acting and slow, boring development really had me itching to turn it off - but, I rationalized, "Oh, it's an independent film. And there's a real trifield meter made by Alpha Labs in it. Give it a chance." Now here I am, writing this as the credits roll, and wish that I could take back the past hour or so of my life. The "acting" was non-existent. The plot was lame. The big "climax" was forced. It is also incredibly misleading to label it as "horror" and "sci-fi", seeing as nothing horrific or sci-fi ever happened. Maybe "drab indie drama" would suffice. Hopefully you read this review in time to spare yourself.
