Trivia

Director Todd Sheets is not a fan of the film himself, he called it his "first but worst" but he had the heart to finish it. He went on record saying: "It took a year and a half because I was held hostage by an insane cameraman (who thought he was in charge and always wanted more money), a local Bar owner named Lonzo who was suppose to be funding the film but disappeared and a cast of well meaning local theater students who went away for the Holidays and some of them didn't come back!!! Some left because they were tired of being held up for 3 or 4 hours by the jerk cameraman every time we were suppose to shoot. I was left with 68% of a once good script and I finished it the only way I knew. It was my first film. It was NOT shot on VHS - but on 3/4 inch video and Betacam like the TV stations of the time used. It was a horrible experience and I almost never made another film." See more »

Classic VHS-Era Backyard movie making!
9 September 2011 | by dbs630-697-952794See all my reviews

I can remember buying a VHS copy of this movie back in the 90s at a horror convention. The first time I watched it I was a bit shocked at how horrible the whole thing was. However, I recently saw this again in one of those 50-pack DVD deals. I found myself sadly nostalgic about ZR. I watched it, laughed, cringed and nearly cried. I have to say, Todd Sheets is no George Romero but he is one of the pioneers of the indie horror scene like it or not. He and his VHS movies have a place in Horror film history. I think only die hard indie horror film buffs who were born long enough ago to remember how hard it was to make a movie on VHS can appreciate Todd's work.

Todd if you read this, don't go quietly into that dark night. Come back, and come back with a "Rampage!"
