The original script for the film included a lot more action spots, but producers decided they had to be cut to fit the budget. See more »
(at around 1h 13 mins) Near the end of the film when the monster has crashed through the wall of the bar, the monster rips off his deer skull mask/helmet to show his true face. As soon as he tears the mask/helmet away, look carefully to the right of the screen. For a split second, you can see the black outline of a person standing beside it. This is revealed in the commentary. See more »
This little gem has just been released straight to DVD in Britain which is a travesty. It deserved to be seen in a cinema. The film shows that horror and comedy do go hand in hand if done well and this film does it perfectly. From the great character bios some of the more gruesome deaths this film has its tongue firmly in its cheek. The cast are top notch with some of the best comedy moments coming from watching the surprise deaths. It breaks a lot of the horror rules with who survives and who doesn't. The gore and special effects are fantastic. The film itself is paced perfectly with very little explanation as to why or what exactly is happening. I love finding a film of this calibre. It shows that you don't need to remake a Asian film with a huge budget in order to make a good movie. Watch it and enjoy it!!!
