Trivia

Project Camelot whistleblower 'Henry Deacon' (pseudonym) has stated on record that a considerable portion of the film's storyline was based on actual events that he had personally witnessed or knew about. When Project Camelot co-founder Kerry Cassidy phoned director and scriptwriter Mike Gray to ask him about this, Gray replied that he every now and then he had received phone calls from people asking him "how come he knew all this had happened". Mike Gray told Kerry Cassidy that he had come up with the storyline when driving one day down the Pacific Coast Highway, on his own, with no influence or suggestion from anyone else. See more »

User Reviews

A pleasant surprise from an era hopelessly enamoured with glitzy effects. Simple, and well done.
9 March 1999 | by BarnabasSee all my reviews

Substituted for expensive, spine-tingling special-effects, are an engaging story and credible performances, particularly from Cherie Currie. If you like seeing what a capable independent filmmaker can do with a limited budget - I recommend this film.
