Trivia

The movie was shot in 2002 using the Canon XL1 camera (standard definition) with Zeiss prime lenses. RatPack Productions also decided to use this movie as a launching pad for a new prototype device called the PNS, which had a spinning prism meant to give the image a more diffuse film look. The device often created sound problems on set and sometimes didn't work at all. It would rob the camera of light and quality and was considered a major mistake to use by the production crew, but RatPack insisted on it. See more »

The Tagline Says It All
5 August 2007 | by moviemanic07See all my reviews

The tag line on the DVD box says it all: "The Big Apple Gets A New Immigrant And A Very Big Problem." Oh so true. Unfortunately, that immigrant isn't the barbaric Romanian Impaler, it's the lame-ass German director. Geez. If your only interest is cheap but plentiful gore, and strippers taking showers, then director Andreas Schnaas delivers. If you want a story or acting or any of the other crafts associated with motion picture story telling, you must go elsewhere. It's easy to see why his films are also known as Violent Sh*t. His list of actors makes me think that he cast the film at a horror convention. Nothing wrong with that. Sadly, he gives few of these Grade-Z horror movie veterans anything to do. Joe Zaso, in particular, is wasted as a romantic lead.

The most interesting thing about the film is the commentary track by the director. Listening to it, you come to the distinct conclusion that he felt he made a good film. Now that's hilarious.
