The special effects that were made specifically for this film are pretty impressive (I read somewhere that the man responsible for them also worked - along with several other people - on the effects of "2001"), but there is WAY too much stock footage here, and whoever color-processed the film should have been fired early on. The monsters display far more personality than the bored, stiff actors, and the director has a bad habit of cutting away from many sequences in midstream. (**)
