A rich girl runs away to live with her boyfriend in the condemned building he and his bandmate are squatting in; they are accidentally locked in as some sort of virus that turns the residents into pus-faced killers spreads. 2.5/5 for bad movie lovers.

*This has very low ratings---3.4 on IMDB. I don't think it's THAT bad; it makes little sense but it's watchable. I'm not sure where the hate is coming from. Yeah, the general idea is similar to [REC], but they really don't remind me much of each other in execution.

*The condemned building has electricity and running water. I might not have noticed this, but the script calls attention to it without actually explaining how it works.

*It's mostly about the characters. In fact the movie runs for half an hour just introducing the various junkies, a Jewish pimp, a pair of bodybuilders in an S&M relationship, a Russian/Chinese drug dealer, and so on before it even starts the virus plot.

*The director has some visual talent---the brief hallucination scenes are good---but little storytelling ability.

*It's got sleaze, a nonsensical story, gay S&M bodybuilders, a cute female lead, and plenty of hateful cast members to kill off---what more could a bad movie lover want? I don't know, but I wanted SOMETHING more to put it over the top.

*I mainly post on this one separately because it's on Netflix streaming, so many of you can catch it if you like.

I was not overly impressed with this one, but the female lead sure was cute!

She's Sean Penn and Robin Wright's daughter. Glad she doesn't look like dad!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
