Notability / references
No evidence of notability of this film. No reviews by nationally-known reviewers or publications (even the so-called New York Times reference is in fact to All Movie Guide). The fact that it is the first feature completed by Ohio State students is not an indication of notability—it is not an assertion that it is the first feature completed by university students: would there be an automatic bypass of notability requirements for the first feature completed by students of every college or university?

Since the statement above was written, significant coverage in reliable sources have been provided from sources not connected to Ohio University: This Week, Columbus Dispatch, Athens News, and ABC News. Further, as guideline understands that a cult horror satire film by independent filmmakers is unlikely to be reviewed by Siskel and Ebert, much less those publications that cater to only big-name, big-budget, highly touted blockbusters... several in-depth reviews the film by individuals independent of the subject, have had their reviews and opinions quoted in the reception section: All Movie Guide, Infernal Dreams, Cranked On Cinema, The Outlook, The Lantern 1, and FeoAmante. The New York Times, Turner Classic Movies, et al are sites used for proper WP:Verification as required by policy, and not to source notability. Above it is seen that notability has been confirmed. Now, the fact that the film is the first feature completed by Ohio State students is only a minor and additional assertion... just as it being the first feature film to use real dead, frozen raccoons. Not major, certainly, but part of the overall multiple notability.. and properly sourced. As for questions about how other "firsts" might be treated... well, that is a different argument and intended for a different film article. In discussing this article here, notability has been asserted AND sourced. Period. However, as with any article, it is an ongoing process and gets better every day.
