Trivia / Zyzzyx Road

Go To

  • Box Office Bomb: This movie had a budget of $2,000,000. It made $20... in the United States. We specify this because the movie only aired in American theaters for one week with no fanfare. It technically made $30, but two of the $5 tickets were refunded because the people who purchased them were cast members from the film. The director wanted to release it internationally, but had to comply with the Screen Actors Guild on showing the film in America first. But even then, the film earned only $368,000 in foreign box office, so it was still a massive flop.

  • Dueling Works: Believe it or not, there was another thriller movie titled Zzyzx also released in February 2006, that involves murder on Zzyzx Road.
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Tom Sizemore and his friend/assistant Peter Walton were arrested during production for failing numerous drug tests as part of their probations. Tom was allowed to continue filming but Peter was jailed after officers discovered he was wanted for possession of child pornography.
  • Similarly Named Works:
    • Stone Sour released "Zzyzx Rd." the same year.
