Trivia

According to director Tor Ramsey, he was pressured a lot during the filming by Karen L. Wolf and John A. Russo, who made him use their friends as the film crew even though Ramsey wanted to hire other people. After screening the Directors Cut of the film, Wolf took the film away from Ramsey, hired a new editor and even looped many lines to correct the plot holes of the new cut. See more »

Oh Tom...
14 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I ONLY watched this movie because I have always liked Tom Savini and wanted to see what he was up to. He was OK in his previous cheesy acting roles, like Dusk till Dawn and some Romero films like DOTD and Martin. Obviously his talent lies in special FX and not in acting, but I give the guy a little credit for acting too, just because he's Tom Savini. But why Tom... why?!?!?! I am shocked that he would have been associated with a movie as bad as this... I can't imagine it was for the money. Anyway, this movie is rubbish and I don't know what Tom was thinking when he signed on. I will never get that hour and a half of my life back.
