Goofs

While stabbing Carrie Stevens in the back, there is a brief scene in the sequence where Priscilla Barnes doesn't have the knife in her hand. Instead she was just squeezing her hand grip without the knife, pretending she's holding the knife. See more »

Quotes

Henry: I'm very picky about my fog. I hate phony fog. I want a very special fog. I do not want a Whitesnake-Poison-Billy-Squire video fog, I want a 1940s black-and-white Peter-Lorre-Boris-Karloff fog. I want a thick, tense serpentine-fog that creeps along the ground. I want a fog that seems like it's coming from Satan's ass.

Low Budget Horror - just what I was in the mood for
29 April 2002 | by sexxxy_one35See all my reviews

I saw this movie over the weekend. I was in the mood for a Low-budget horror film and didn't expect anything more. The problems with the movie are primarily in the story and it's execution. There are strange cuts to people dying or spying on overweight girls in trailers that make no sense. Who are these people and why are they in the movie? Charles Fliescher and Pricilla Barnes both over-acted horribly. A shame because I used to like them. The pleasent surprise came from an actress I had not seen before. The lead female in the movie, Janey Colfax played by Jaime Anstead, was beautiful and very good. I would have liked to see more of her. Over all, the guys were pretty plain, most of the other female talent was lacking unless having a good body is talent these days, the horror mask of the killer was stupid and not scary, the story was un-original, the direction and production value were poor... But it was just what I was in the mood for - Thanks to pretty girls with big chests, lots of blood, a good performance (Anstead) and my expectations of a cheap B-Horror movie..
