Cheesy entertainment!
18 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wonderfully cheesy sci-fi film about a group of space explorers that get trapped on a planet called nova, where they are attacked by various monsters and alien creatures. Enjyably cheesy low-budget opus is full of bad effects (lizards dressed in frills, elephants that have rugs on them to make them look like mammoths, cheap-looking giant ants, etc.) and the film is full of terrible acting and a rotten script, as well as a plot that's been done to death. Despite all these uneven flaws and gapping continuity, this film manages to be an entertaining little dino-fest that sci-fi fans will enjoy. Worth renting on DVD.
