Quotes

Gary Lee: [at a Rollerboy office-building, he explains to Griffin why the Rollerboys don't use their own designer-drugs] I am very strict on this: We have to remain pure. Let the others indulge their weaknesses.
Griffin: Why sell it, then?
Gary Lee: Because we have to, for now; It's just a phase. Besides, some people just aren't worth saving... Do you remember when we were kids? Blood Brothers? Penknife and a couple drops of blood?
Griffin: Yeah... We're lucky we didn't get tetanus, huh?

This movie is terribly awesome
27 August 2006 | by thetizzleSee all my reviews

This movie is awful in a really great way. If you don't like bad movies you shouldn't be looking at the work of Corey Haim. But that doesn't mean that bad movies aren't enjoyable. And this one has everything.

By everything I mean post-apocalyptic, drug dealing, fascist skating around in formation wearing trench coats.

I know what you are thinking "Wait, wait, I have seen this a million times", but you haven't seen an apple eaten as viciously as you will in this film.

I wept for that apple, it was violated.

Plus you get Corey Haim and Patrica Arquette.

I say gather a group of like minded friends, some adult beverages, and enjoy a truly enjoyable bad movie.
