If the extra materials on the disc are to be believed, and the movie was actually made for next to nothing, I think this is showing the kind of technical quality that indie filmmakers need to try for.
Sure, the movie has all the earmarks of low budget... cheesy props, stilted dialogue, bad acting (and good acting too), and some hairpin turns that leave you scratching your head, but overall the film looks like it was made by people who cared about what they were doing
and were having some fun while they did it. Trying ot compare this movie with, say, Serenity (a similarly themed sci-fi sort of thing) would be impossible considering the huge budget gap you'd have to allow for. And frankly, Serenity didn't do this well with the millions they had!
And peaking of extras, I don't think I've ever seen an indie DVD with this much extra stuff on it. Its like they spent more time on the extras than on the actual film! So if extras are a selling point for you, you won't be disappointed.
