Trivia

The makeshift dummy (fondly nick-named "Gary Oldman" for his unwavering commitment to his role) was constructed primarily out of a department store bouncy ball, a basket ball, a couple of water noodles, some juggling balls (for joints) and a lot of duct tape. While the dummy was being thrown over the lookout railing of the Walhalla temple in Germany, a group of Austrian tourists were watching off camera and shouting encouragement as attempt after attempt was made to hurl poor Gary over the edge without "hurler" Elias' arms being caught on camera. Ultimately his arms could still be seen in the footage, so they were removed digitally in post. Gary the Dummy eventually immigrated to the United States in a cardboard box and now resides safely in Elias' closet. See more »

Agrento meets Mad Magazine
18 May 2008 | by flyingbirdcolorSee all my reviews

Imagine Monty Python directed by Dario Argento, and you have this crazy collection of nine gore/comedy skits. The linking thread for these surreal bloodbaths is a Monty Python like reporter doing an investigative report of famed horror author H.P Lovecraft. Cameos by famed Troma intern Lloyd Kaufmann and punk rock princess Joanna Angel pepper this savage bit of DVD fun. My only complaint here is that while Juggernaut made a film with a very original look, and format, leaping from dismemberment to giggles, he throws in some rather tired clichés. During the closing credits we see "funny" out-takes off in the corner. Some scenes are pretty much direct repeats of famous Python sketches. Biff, when somebody says, "You know, Biff how we see in all those movies where they (insert cliché here.) We can do that." Just ignore them, Biff. Anyway, fun, sick movie Biff.
