I have been looking for this movie since it came out in 1971.
19 January 2000 | by (Newmarket, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't want to write a great deal about this film as I only saw it once in 1971. My best friend and I went downtown and then the film disappeared. We were so struck with the concepts, effects and storyline that we have remembered it still even after all these years. I look forward to finally getting a copy and re seeing it. Perhaps I can add more then.
