Since the story is set in a not-too-distant future, the currency used is the ECU (European Currency Unit), which at the time was due to replace in some years the local currencies of several countries within the UE. However, by the time this happened in 2002, the ECU had been renamed "Euro". See more »

Hysterically demented sci-fi/horror/comedy
While other reviewers suggest this started out well but later lost focus, to me it went vice versa. Starts out OK, trying to balance between hilarity and supposed social commentary and of course action and blood-sheding. It manages quite well (hey this is low budget!) but I don't think the director meant for serious satire or comment on high society and life style etc. others suggested. Anyway, at the final third part, when the spaceship reaches the planet, the film gets to its high point! I had a great time watching this film, it's funny (in a twisted way), there's blood and sickness. It's high time of entertainment. It reminded me of BRAINDEAD & BAD TASTE of Peter Jackson, as well as BODY MELT of Philip Brophy and maybe a bit Mad Max (by the way ALL Australian films). Just don't expect TOO MUCH. Fans of mainstream sci-fi cinema: STAY AWAY!
