Goofs

When Donna puts on her bikini bottom after supposedly disrobing behind the rock, she pulls them up over her panties. This goof is only noticeable in the full-screen (open matte) version of the film. When cropped for wide screen the illusion of nudity is preserved. See more »

The cheesiest.
13 August 1999 | by (Bridgewater, MA, USA) – See all my reviews

MAN!! This movie is the cheese. It's about a astronaut who is taken over by an unknown force and goes mad in space. He begs his friends down on Earth to push the red button and blow him up. So they do so. However, his hand survives the blast and starts killing people. Though, it horrifies his girlfriend, a med student finds it and takes it home. It kills his landlady, and then takes him over. The kid starts acting weird and kills people and attempts to kill the crusty old man who says "No dancing, not allowed!" in his restaurant. The hand is picked clean by cats but then it is attempted to be shipped away and....Well....let's just say never trust the delivery man. This really scared me as kid.
