Lorraine Esmeralda (Anne on psychological evaluation form) Willy (Lorraine Malby) believes there is a portal to another dimension in Chelmsford. She is guided by Hogan (Had his name removed from credits?) who is her "Internet Guru" guiding her to the portal for donations. Most people, well actually everyone, believes she is crazy, but not a danger to anyone as she quests for the opening. It is revealed late in the film, she was dipped in Agent Orange as an infant.

Lorraine Malby is to cinema what Susan Boyle is to singing...just close your eyes and imagine it is someone else, like Kurt Russell. This is a low budget cult production, reminding me of "Pegasus Hunter" in its brand of quality and zaniness. This is the brainstorm child of David Hollinshead and Philip Thompson who apparently were smoking while reading Gerald Massey's work on ancient Egyptian name origins of British pubs.

I liked the film overall, but there were too many mediocre scenes that lacked entertainment, particularly when the writers and directors inflated their egos and imagined themselves as actors, having to be on the screen.

Guide: Excessive F-words. No sex or nudity (thank you Lorraine for drawing the line.).
