I read about this movie somewhere.... if fact, I read all the commments below too. I can verify Bruce Ford's comments that Jimmy Zip was Hollywood Film Festival award winner.... and it shows.
Face it, the video box sucks big time. It is not a horror flick. But really well done story of teen runaway who discover a cruel world with pimps and dopers and the like. The strange encounter with the artist in the junk yard is a nice turn. Discover some first class independent filmmakers. Hats off to Robert McGinley.
