Trivia

The original cut of the film (titled "The Weekend it Lives") was supposedly more of a comic-horror parody than straight horror. However, when York Entertainment picked up the home video rights years later they drastically re-cut the film. Scenes are now incomplete, out of order or missing entirely leaving much of the film incoherent and its tone unclear. It is unknown if any prints of the original version still exist. See more »

Goofs

The opening titles contain at least three typos, and every line begins with a capital letter, even if it is in the middle of a sentence. See more »

You Axed For It!
21 May 2005 | by whammy666See all my reviews

THis movie is amazing. I rented it from Hollywood Video after hearing it was the worst film ever, I though, "A movie worse than The Item? A Miracle!" No this is not worse than The Item. I rented it on VHS, and the small screen is funny as heck. Then I had to, I had to buy the DVD. The DVD sucks. No disc menu, and they enlarged the screen! The sound is supposed to be stereo sound or whatever but you still cant hear them....friggin hysterical. This movie has so many problems, it is just funny. I cant wait to show this crap to my friends. Check this one out if you wanna see a bad, bad, bad, bad movie. But get it on VHS cause of the small screen. Makes the movie funnier. Micheal Mfume we love you!!!!!!
