Just caught this little “neo-grindhouse” gem by borrowing the DVD from my local library. This project started as a “make your own grindhouse film trailer” contest, and then the pros came in to fill this project out–most notably Rutger Hauer and some Canadian indy film talents.
I would’ve much preferred to see this film without Hauer, but if this were the case, I suspect this effort would have brought us a film somewhat like Antfarm Dickhole or Bong of the Dead. Z-grade film, with little notoriety outside those of us who seek these gems out.
Regardless, this was a fun watch. The plot? Read that title again, plus some odd demons thrown in, inexplicably in the middle to move things along. Best line was from Abby (Molly Dunsworth, of Treevenge):
Not all the world’s problems can be solved with a shotgun!
Hobo answers, James Dean style:
But it’s all I know…
Enjoy a couple videos here on the making of this film, and some interviews with cast and producers:
