When a friend recommended this obscure monster movie to me I went in a bit apprehensively. I knew nothing of the film's makers or main cast. Boy oh boy, was I in for a surprise! Something completely different was about to fill my TV screen --- a snazzy little gem of a film which may very well take YOU by surprise too! I heard this was supposed to be some kind of homage to David Lynch's "Eraserhead," and I guess if you're gonna steal, why not steal from the best. Well, it's not.... not so much an homage to "Eraserhead" but rather a celebration of a dream -- or -- what you can do with very little money and a dream. Sure the film is unevenly paced in spots, slow on the draw at times, and a very simple storyline, but it never leaves you feeling like you wasted your time.
The real story here is revealed in the dvd's Audio Commentary where the director tells about his passion to make a movie without the big bucks and with no studio backing. And did he succeed???? Don't expect a film classic here, but with a little fine tuning these guys will make it to the BIG screen for sure.
I gave this dvd 5 out of 5 stars, not because the movie is a perfect gem, because it's not, but rather because the film makers really seemed to pour their heart and soul into this production which really shows in every single frame --- and also because the black & white photography really grabs you and that's a hard thing to nail these days.
