Trivia

The jail scenes were filmed in a closed wing of The Barnstable County Corrections Facility in Barnstable, MA. There was so much mold on the set, the crew had to bleach the entire area to decrease the possibility of infection. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning of the film, a pharmaceutical salesman is shown "detailing" a physician and lauding the merits of a new prescription drug known as "Oxy-Contin." This is completely in error. Oxy-Contin is a Schedule II narcotic which can only be handled by physicians and pharmacists who have a current "BNDD number." Salesmen, as shown in this scene are not entitled to have any of a Schedule II medication and federal law prohibits giving out samples of any scheduled drugs. See more »

This is simply a shout out to the Director..
12 May 2012 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Hey, you don't know me, but I am a good friend of Joe's. He showed me your movie, OxyMorons.... I have to tell you, I was floored. It was so real.... even the pretty awful and graphic scenes.... it showed EXACTLY how it is.... the good , the bad, and the flipping awful. My hat is off to you. Especially being a first time director!! Seriously, the cinematography, the music, you even got real live Bostonians to play the roles so everyone doesn't sound like they are in Brooklyn!! In all seriousness, the Oxy epidemic has touched the lives in one way or another of pretty much EVERYONE in and around the greater Boston area... and nothing I have seen or read about it has ever struck me as being as close to reality as this flick. You told it just like it is for thousands of people, no sugar coating... no embellishing... just cold, hard, and kinda scary truth. You have a gift dude.... Keep 'em coming!!
