Storyline

Construction workers building an airstrip on a small Pacific Island encounter an ancient non-material lifeform which has lived in the ruins of an ancient temple for millenia. The entity is of course malevolent and commandeers the earthmoving equipment to the general detriment of all concerned. Written by Bill Leue <leue@crd.ge.com>

Goofs

In the film's intro, an aerial view of the island said to be 200 miles from Africa shows it has one tree-covered hill surrounded by a sandy beach. Later, after the survivors of the initial attack flee up the hill, a much larger landscape can be seen in the background, including additional hills and, much further away, snow-covered mountains, revealing the filming site (probably in the hills outside Los Angeles).

The Bar's Closed!
25 April 2002 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this flick when I was around the age of 12 and I thought it was wicked. Then to my surprise it was on again only recently and I still think it's a good film. Clint Walker is cool in this and I also thought he was good in the original 'Dirty Dozen'. In fact, they are all quite well known actors who star in this movie about a bulldozer that gets infected with hostile alien life and goes on a murderous rampage.

It's a watchable film, but also understandable that some people just won't like it. Like my sister for example, who watched it and then a few days later commented to one of her friends that she had watched this terrible film called 'Tractor Killer'. Rather amusing.

Rating 7/10.
