  3. Its only 80 minutes long
  4. The pot roast really looks good
  5. Proof anybody could make a movie with a Mac Book.
  6. Great soundtrack
  7. The Idea was good.
I wonder why J.R. Bookwalter helped produce this movie? This is so bad I can't stand it, Its a great idea for a story/movie but maybe they should have pushed for Full Moon to pick this up. Yet in the same token, I watched it all the way through never really wanting to turn it off. I need to see how the train wreck was going to end. By the time it ended I did not hate it as much as I thought I would. Some day this may be on Svengoolie if that tells you anything. What I did learn from this movie was you can make a good looking movie that sounds great from the comfort of your own home. But you need to find better make-up and actors to really pull it off.
