TWO things worth noting
3 March 2007 | by (Houston, USA) – See all my reviews

I love all Lorena Velazquez movies ( and she has quit a few! ), but this one is so special because of all the assortment of male monsters this two beautiful women from another planet had been collecting across the whole universe.

1) When Ana Bertha Lepe and Piporro use the elevator to get inside the spaceship, she has a dress in a different shade of gray than when she is actually in. The color changes during the elevator trip.

2) When the spaceship leaves the earth, you can see the planet earth with the actual lines around and from north to south like if they had used a Globe to make the scene.

See it! You will have a good time!
