"I actually worked on this movie. Well, briefly. I worked as a grip for the classroom scenes. But only for a few days because I simply could not stomach the out-of-control egos of the Hale Manor Collective. I also have to point out something very shady going on here. A few days ago, someone posted an honest review of this movie that the Collective did not agree with. A quick side note, the reviewer hit the nail on the head in saying that the reviews came from the people involved with the movie. When the DVD's listing first appeared here on Amazon, an e-mail was sent out for everyone to post reviews. When the negative review was posted, another e-mail was sent out telling us to "bury it". The good reviews that are on this page are not honest, they are all phony and posted by the various members of the Hale Manor Collective. And frankly, that really stinks and is really unprofessional. So guys, face the facts. You made a lousy movie and somebody called you on it. Grow up."
I only give this thing 1 star... because I can't give it any

"I saw this movie, and I use that term VERY loosely, in film class. As an example of what NOT TO DO. LAND OF THE COLLEGE PROPHETS is bad. Really, REALLY BAD. And not a "fun bad", either.
Where do I begin? It claims to be directed by about eight different people and it shows. It also shows that not a one of them ever went to school, either. Very simple, first day, Film School 101 rules are completely ignored and it shows off that the people doing the thing are nothing short of amateur and really comes across as a public-access show.
It claims to have a script, but can't see how. The story, another term that I use very loosely, is all over the place and extremely ponderous. It tries like the dickens to tell the story of the world coming to an end on some Lucas-Spielberg-Jackson-type scale. Except no one told the rest of the town- traffic runs as normal, college students wander freely during the numerous badly choreographed fights between the (cough) heroes and assorted grade-z hell-spawn. Attention to any kind of believable detail is simply non-existent.
Whatever you do, AVOID THIS MOVIE. Do not believe a single positive review about it (as they obviously are coming from the less-than-no-talent hacks that were involved with this turkey), because anyone with DNA will be not only bored to tears by this thing, but downright insulted."

"Check it out, that Boyd guy is right. He posted something bad, then 5 guys jumped on him and buried it. If you check out what else they've reviewed, you'll see that every single one of them have only reviewed this movie! WHAT A BUNCH OF LOSERS! I bet they they'll bury this one with a bunch of BS reviews too! Losers, serious losers!"
Stop the pain, I want to get off!

"I got this movie for my birthday. Let me tell you, having a birthday so close to x-mas really bites. But not as much as this movie does. When it started, it was so bad that I thought it was a comedy. It's not. Points for trying, but it makes grateful that Amazon has a great return policy. And, Mike, if you're reading this, for your birthday I'm going to get you ten pounds of rotting fish. That should let you know just bad this movie stunk."
