Did You Know?

Trivia:
According to Michael Sauter's "The Worst Movies of All Time, Or: What Were They Thinking", the producer lost the original soundtrack in post-production. Unable to get all of the cast back together for dubbing, they were forced to record a narration and use surviving alternate takes to replace it. However, in one interview, William Thourlby indicated that the lack of soundtrack was a cost-savings measure, and that voices were to be dubbed later.See more »

They had no shame, 19 May 1999
Author: lorne-2 from Manitoba

What really sets this movie apart from other bad films is the makers' utter lack of embarrassment at the disastrous technical execution of the film. It isn't just that the monster is an old carpet, the exterior of the spaceship appears to be a garage door, and the editing is so incongruous it seems almost abstract. These shameless idiots actually lost or destroyed or never made a soundtrack, so they substituted bad narration (complete with weird pseudo-psychological non-sequitor explanations of characters' motivations), random dubbing of snatches of dialogue ("My god! What is it?"), even more random music (startlingly awful music) and under-mixed sound effects. You must see it. It's so bad it commands your attention, but the pacing is so slow it can only really be watched in fast forward.
