- but I'm probably the only person in the world who loves it and thinks it's his best film.

I don't think it's his best film, but I do like it very much. Can't understand why people are so against it. If people realised what a hard time RZ had making it, they might appreciate it more. Universal initially bankrolled the project, but when the execs saw snippets of it, they deemed it too nasty for their tastes and abandoned it altogether. The film sat around gathering dust until Lionsgate finally picked it up. It made a healthy profit at the box office and this was really the point when the major studios sat up and took notice that audiences wanted their horror hard and gory. So, in many ways, it was partly responsible for initiating the new wave of extreme horror at the box office. I like it, anyway, I think it's an interesting and unusual horror film.
