So Awful, It's a Must See
10 July 2004 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I had actually forgotten about this movie. But, how I do not understand, because in the wee hours of the morning over 30 years ago, I was thoroughly amused by this amazingly awful movie. They took an old series of cliffhangers and edited them into what must be simply the worst movie ever created. The acting, if you can call it that, is way beyond pathetic. I am not certain there actually was a director involved and I think they made the lines up as they went along. However, it is the special effects that make this movie one of the all time worst. The Cyclotrode X (okay there must have been a really bad writer involved to have developed this name for such a deadly world threatening machine) is a modern day wonder. It must have taken at least 15 minutes to devise this fiendish device. For the aficionado of truly bad movies, this is a must see.
