good cult classic
6 April 2001 | by joed1667See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie in years but recently found it on sale in DVD. You can watch it with or without commentary from the director who admits that it is not a true story. They just added that to make the movie more believable. Despite the movie being fiction, its still worth watching.
