This one is...  uhm... well, I have a feeling that if you like the Rifftrax for The Room and Birdemic, you'll love this:

What makes you say that? it looks weird but I wouldn't say it looks *bad* by any stretch.  I've been waiting for it for a while actually

While anything is riffable I wouldn't put this in the same class as the Room or Birdemic at all. Unlike those "films" this one is competently made and has decent acting.

Yeah, the creator here clearly knows that the whole thing is ridiculous but is trying to have gorey fun with a crazy idea.

The problem is that it's way, WAY too pretentious to be what it is. Someone tried mixing French New Wave with The Naked Gun. It deserves to get taken down a few pegs.

I saw this the other day

It is ridiculous enough that it should be riffed imo

Hilarious concept and a bit odd.

No, I got it from seeing the movie. I posted the trailer to give people an idea of what the movie was about, in case they hadn't seen it.

Just saw this movie and while it is awesome, it would be epic with a rifftrax. The part at the beginning when the tires first moving demands Nick Nolte Jokes!
