    When this premiered at the Toronto After Dark Festival it had a short warm-up film which just so happened to be a friend of mine’s work that I was in.
    It got better reviews than Mutant Chronicles by far.
    Maybe they too should have congensed the film and saved John Malcovich the effort of preparing to do another moody speech.

    Thanks for the info, William, and the link. It looks as though the opening act was better than the headliner. I’m interested in what your thoughts on MC might have been when you saw it at the festival.

    And sadly, I still want to see this film even if it is looking like a train wreck :D. Why am I always attracted to movies like this? LOL.

    Sadly, I was only at the Festival vicariously through the movie I was in.
    That and through reading the major buzz Lazer Ghosts 2 got and the lookwarm MC recieved. I mainly heard there is nothing really exciting about it.
