Trivia

The incident described by engineer Amalie Fabarge, where female engineering students are murdered by a gunman, is a reference to the École Polytechnique massacre in Montreal in 1989, when fourteen women students were shot by a disturbed woman-hater, as shown in the film Polytechnique (2009).

Sod the books, let's just use the title on our film
15 August 2010 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Another Syfy channel abomination. Why do they keep making films when they have no feel - or respect - for the genre? I wonder why they didn't put a giant boa in the film & call it Boa vs Riverboat. Maybe they wanted to but thought that it would cheapen the product. Phillip Jose Farmer's Riverworld books (starting with To your scattered bodies go, which this thing palimpsests) are not flawless; but they had stories which made made sense & exotic character details which entertained. They - he - didn't deserve this travesty. It isn't a film: it's a cheat sheet of the least interesting bits mangled through a malfunctioning food processor. & to think that Robert Hewitt Wolfe once wrote some of the best ST:TNG & DS9 episodes. He must'ave had some great EPs at Paramount keeping him in line
