Goofs

Early in the movie, Marcus opens an old-fashioned, mechanical music box which plays the first few stanzas of the melody to the nursery rhyme "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". Before it plays the last stanza ("Life is but a dream"), however, he abruptly shuts its lid, stopping the music. The next time he opens it, its mechanism should resume playing where the song had left off, but instead it starts over, at the beginning of the song. See more »

This was never intended to be a good film; just a tax scam
19 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

According to the article below; the sole purpose of this movie was to scam the Iowa film board. Iowa gave among the most generous tax incentives to have movies made in the state. This one certainly didn't help anyone in Iowa. The people involved were prosecuted.

The site is io9.com The article is the biggest science fiction movie hoaxes and scams of all time.

I only watched a few minutes of this movie then checked out the reviews. The article from IO9.com explained why someone would even bother to make this.

Don't waste any time on this.
