Another OffBeat Cinema Saturday Night Special!, 29 December 2007
Author: Zylaw from Pacific Northwest

OffBeat Cinema has a "movie" each week which is, well, offbeat! That's why this gets a "5" rating from me because I watch with tongue in cheek to see how bizarre the stuff they find and show can get. And, actually this wasn't that "offbeat" compared to much of the other stuff.

I'll leave the technical movie stuff to the movie techies. For me, this was pure sci-fi cheese which is exactly the mood I was in sitting at home on a Saturday night. I'm trying to imagine watching it in 1967 terms and it might have been o.k. for a 10 year old at the Saturday Matinée.

If you want to be amused by some unreal sci fi, and you bring your imagination and sense of humor, this is a fun way to pass time. Based on standards of "good sci-fi movies," however, you'll probably want something that had a better (read: BIGGER) budget. Probably not unlike the actors and director in this film did.
