Quotes

Maj. Cummings: We want you to give us everything you've got!
Peterson: But, Jeff, we've already exceeded the design limits. Every time you take a test, you ask for more power. If I take anymore of those rods out, the reactor's liable to get out of control.
Maj. Cummings: Well, take some more out. We'll have to risk it. We've got to have more power!

Quite Underrated!
22 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite of the low budget films, this one is an exercise in doing a monster film RIGHT. The stalwart hero, Marshall Thompson, is posted at a joint US/Canadian base where a nuclear reactor is being used to make radar able to pick up enemies further away. Unfortunatly, a scientist nearby is also tapping into the power and he's created beings from his own subconscience (like the ID from Forbidden Planet) who have the nasty habit of sucking out peoples brains and spines! The end of this film is stellar with effects that had to take up a third of the films budget! No one whose seen this film can forget those little brain monsters! It deserves a higher rating than other voters gave it!
