Goofs

Shortly after the monster arrives at the dance hall, a woman running towards a door is thrown down by a man who grabs her arm. Her dress and brassiere are torn away, briefly revealing her breasts. The woman looks surprised, covers her chest and hides behind a man for the remainder of the shot. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Despite Brett's inquiries about what Martin had seen in the spacecraft, he avoided specific details for fear of distrubing her more than she was. If the truth were known, Martin was more than a little disturbed himself.

Wow!! Awesome!!
3 May 2004 | by (Space Mountain) – See all my reviews

Guys, I got to tell you, this movie is tremendous. It is the ultimate sci-fi epic. The ultimate tour-de-force!!

slowly puts crack pipe down

I agree with all the other comments. If "Manos" The Hands of Fate is the worst film ever made, this is the number one contender. It doesn't have the hilarious cheese of Hobgoblins, Warrior of the Lost World, or Werewolf (or Werewilf). It is as slow moving and poorly done as you can ever imagine.

This colostomy bag of a movie stars no one, and the actors do nothing. The "creature" is the slowest moving, most ridculously designed monster in movie history. the actors have to crawl into the Creeping terror's mouth themselves. Yes, it that bad!! I won't go over the movie again, just see it for yourself, you will not believe it.
