The film is significant because it is considered the first "microfilm," or digital video film shot on a budget of less than $50,000, to feature a stars of the horror film community. With a budget of only $10,000. Since the 2002 filming of Zombiegeddon, many other low-budget horror flicks have followed suit and cast large ensembles of horror icons, many of them employing the same actors. The film also featured newcomers to the indy horror scene Josh Christoffersen and Max Kreutzer as makeup artists and actors.
