Trivia

The knife featured in the climactic fight between Agent Scorby and Kurt S. Charlottan (which Scorby uses "the Force" to retrieve) is an authentic Hitlerjugend knife. The knife was a family heirloom handed down by director Michael A. Martinez's first cousin, twice removed Harald Schubert, who served in the Waffen SS and narrowly escaped Russian Encirclement to surrender to the Americans at the end of World War 2. See more »

"Will it ever end?"
11 March 2006 | by znowhite01See all my reviews

Is what I kept asking myself during this mind-numbing blight on homemade film making, Lucio Fulci and all other things holy in this world. Mike Martinez, a smart and creative man with decent knowledge about cinema (though you would never believe it just based on this feature) drags out a non-entity of a story from a should-have-been five minute short into a 55 minute epic assault on senses and intelligence. Let's get the first major atrocity out of the way first: acting. I sympathize with no-budget, homemade film makers as I am one myself, forced to use uninterested family members and friends to perform, but c'mon Mike. These silly idiots laugh, giggle, eye the camera IN EVERY EFFING SHOT, and basically make me feel better about myself as a struggling and insecure thespian. There was absolutely NO EFFORT involved. NONE. ZERO. I would have fired these morons the first day, but I guess they were nice enough to help you out. I understand how it goes. I don't know what editing program was used (I'm hoping dual VCRs) because it is plain bad. So bad, I'm not even going to dignify it with a witty dismissal. Tip: When someone fires a gun, the bullet takes about 1/100 a second to reach its target, not one full minute. Also, people do not pause longer than two seconds when speaking a line of dialog to each other. Got that Mike? You're not David Lynch, you're not Jean-Pierre Melville, and you're not foolin' me. Special effects? Awful. One character who is supposed to be holding up a decapitated head, gleefully swings around an empty mask. You mean to tell me you can't put a pillow or sweater in there? You guys wreck your parents' hardwood floors with fake blood and throw juice all over their bathroom, but stuffing a mask with a T-shirt is too much work? OK, so it's funny, but it's obviously a result of incompetence and not clever writing. There's a divider between campiness and plain stupidity, a line these people fail to recognize. Wrting and directing is just as bad with dialog apparently written by second graders raised on early-80s Halloween rip-offs. The worst part is hearing Mike direct DURING the takes he used to edit. David Wood was shameless enough to credit himself as a fight choreographer, which may be the funniest thing about this mess (that or the HEINOUS mop haircut). Sorry, Mike. I know you have *some* talent as I saw in Chimera. I guess we have to crawl before we can walk.
