Trivia:
According to 'Michael Sauter (I)' '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 »

The Worst Movie of ALL-TIME, 23 August 2005
Author: The_Man_With_A_Harmonica from central wisconsin

Forget Manos, this is without a doubt the worst movie EVER MADE! The incredibly dull monster, bad dubbing, bad acting, annoying narration and lack of narration during parts where you need it, the stupid couples who never learned how to run, the idiot military who cant figure out how to shoot a gun, the unexplained sub plots,no Torgo, EVERYTHING IS WRONG IN THIS MOVIE!! Even watching it on MST3K is nearly impossible, but if you are going to watch it, use Mike and the bots!!

The movie starts with stock footage of a space shuttle lifting playing backwards. A couple and a cop decide to investigate, blah blah blah monster eats people, blah blah blah monster explodes. AVOID THIS FILM BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!
