Quotes

Alicia: Doesn't this bother any of you? We're on an island where the Rave of the year is supposed to be happening, but it's completely deserted.
Simon: Yeah, it worries me. It worries me that there aren't any mixers. Simon cannot survive on Bud alone.
Greg: Speak for yourself, dude.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits play over video of the games, from both the arcade and Dreamcast versions, begining with the famous "You must stop Curien!" scene from the game! See more »

Alternate Versions

In 2008, Lionsgate has released a Director's Cut version of the film on DVD. The film was made into a comedy with new music, alternative scenes, outtakes and several overlay-commentaries, which is the reason for the subtitle "Funny Version" on the DVD's front cover. This works remarkably well, thanks to self-ironic, exposing humor (continuity-issues, plot holes, sub-par acting performances etc. are mentioned; partly a little dumpy, e.g. when fart noises are faded in).

Think of the worst film you've ever seen... Then times it by 5 and you'll get this.
3 October 2008 | by BamVoyageSee all my reviews

F*ck Me! I've seen some incredibly horrific movies in my time but this takes the p*ss!

Honestly I can't express in words how bad this film actually is. Besides the plot that isn't really there, the comically crap acting, the hilariously dreadful excuses for zombies; You know what, I could go on all day. Every little thing in this film is either stupid, pointless, crap or embarrassing. I express to anyone who wants to watch this movie... don't!

I'm ashamed to say, I have this on my rack. It's hidden away right at the god damn bottom of the huge pile. I couldn't even give this horse-sh*t excuse for a film away. That's how bad it is.
