An assortment of various people who include stripper Cherry, her shady mechanic ex-boyfriend Wray, a strong-willed doctor, the local sheriff, and an assortment of various people must join forces to survive the night as the so-called "sickos" threaten to take over the whole town and the world.

In the jail cell scene where Wray (Freddy Rodriguez) asks J.T. (Jeff Fahey) if he's alright, he holds his gun upside down while he fakes handing it to the guard, he then shoots the guard. He is holding the gun by the frame. The gun is a 1911 style pistol. A 1911 style pistol can only be fired by squeezing the grip safety on the back of the pistols grip. The gun would never have fired in this case. However, not all 1911 style pistols have the grip safety. More than one manufacturer has made a 1911 style pistol without the grip safety and there are plenty of people capable of pinning this feature on an original or replacing the frame for one without a grip safety.

I've seen a fairly large segment of this film and don't understand either of the two negative reviews at all. I classed it as a zombie flick and as such found it a good addition to the genre. To say it is the sickest (notice the correct spelling) film ever made shows a complete lack of cinema knowledge to the extent of idiocy. Anyone who has seen any of Rodriquez's previous work will not be in the least bit surprised by anything in this film and will probably enjoy as such. If you like the Horror genre, especially Zombies, which are thankfully making a return to cinema, you will find a special place in your dark and twisted hearts for this. I have and can't wait to see it on the big screen. Makes a refreshing change from the horror pap that's come out of Hollywood in the last decade.
