Storyline

Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

Dr. Peter Burton, dressed in a radiation suit, tells Dr. Sheppard and Joanna Merritt to stay back as he enters a radioactive hot zone in the chemistry lab, but Sheppard and Merritt follow him in anyway. When Peter carries out a dead scientist - dead from radiation poisoning - Sheppard and Merritt stay behind with a Geiger counter to seek out the radiation source, neither wearing protective gear. Peter soon returns with Dr. Van Ness. Peter discovers and secures a deadly radioactive isotope, but Peter is still the only one wearing a protective suit. The others stand about three to four feet away, watching quietly as Peter's actions expose them to lethal levels of radiation. See more »

Tense undercurrent..
21 June 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Saw this film when I was about 10 years old. I loved Sci-Fi movies so naturally saw this one. But something was different. There was some unusually tense undercurrent in the story. Actually scared me. Years later I realized the nervous tension was due to the underlying theme of the 'cold war'. The Cold War was very real back in the 50's and as a kid you would hear, now and then, things that would scare the pants off of you. What came first? The chicken or the egg? Was this a sci-fi flick that used the cold war tension or was it overwhelmed by the omnipresent tensions of said war? Don't know but it scare the heck out of me back then.
