Goofs

The Phantom's spacesuit is highly radioactive, forcing the scientists to handle it with tongs and transport it in a radiation-proof box. Yet back in the lab, and despite the fact that they repeatedly say that the suit's radiation is lethal to humans, they not only keep it out in the open and hold it in their hands wearing nothing more for protection than rubber gloves, but when the suit dissolves they stand breathing in fumes that would necessarily also be fatally radioactive. Also, despite its being so intensely radioactive, the suit doesn't contaminate anything it comes into contact with. See more »

Quotes

Bill Randall: [knocks on lab door] Barbara? Barbara, are you in there?
Barbara Randall: Bill, listen to me. I'm not alone. Someone is in here with me. I can't see him. He locked the door and has the key.
Bill Randall: I'll break the door down!
Barbara Randall: No, Bill, don't! Please! You better get help!

Phantom is Good Fun
24 August 2002 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

An alien spaceship lands on Earth and an Invisible alien soon begins to terrorize ordinary citizens.

This low-budget science fiction film actually strives to reach above its limitations. Now it doesn't entirely succeed and a lot of the film(especially the narration) is laughable but the ending does surprise you. Much better than I expected and while I wasn't expecting much , this does deserves marks for trying. Great fun for a Saturday afternoon.
