This one calls for a remake., 23 April 2003
Author: gridoon

As other reviewers have noted, what we have here is a great basic concept (and to think that the film predates "Solaris" by more than ten years!), trapped in a grade-Z production (appalling color-processing, cheap special effects, overuse of stock footage, etc.). The film would still make a pretty good "Twilight Zone" episode, but a well-made remake would be most welcome. (**)
