Terribly underrated. It should have a big cult following, it has all the potentials. Strange dreamy atmosphere with a good feel, bizarre characters, ala Paxton and Kove, which make up for a not so good plot. One of my favorite "midnight movies" of all time. Smoke a doob! Watch it! show your friends!, talk about it. I want this on dvd and/or blu now!
