The Movie

  • The Scrappy: Katya's brother Willy is such a grating presence that some viewers would rather see him burned in the oven than Emily.
  • Special Effects Failure: Emily getting stabbed in the throat with the scissors looks incredibly fake.
  • Trapped by Mountain Lions: The Super Bowl party serves little purpose to the story except as a way to allow Mikos to conveniently step in and murder virtually everyone in the house.

  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The aforementioned throat-stabbing aside, the makeup and gore effects are quite impressive for what must have been a fairly low-budget film, and stand out as some of the most gruesome committed to videotape. Possibly averted with the circular saw murder, though, as the director reportedly used an actual cadaver for the close-up shots, meaning that some of the gore may have been real.


The band

  • Ear Worm: "Straight on through the gates of heaven..."
    • "The fire in my mourning soul"
  • Epic Riff: Many, but special mention goes to the opening riff of "Colours of Autumn".
  • Growing the Beard: Their early material suffered from the band trying way too hard to sound "raw" in a way that detracted from their sound, but over time they became a pretty good band.
