Goofs

David took a 12 volt/6 cell battery out of the 1970s Chevrolet Blazer, and replaced it with a 6 volt/3 cell battery. A 6 volt system can usually be used with a 12 volt battery in an emergency, but not the opposite. Only vehicles made before the '60's use 6 volt electrical systems. See more »

I am glad I am not the only one
13 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought I was the only one that remembered this movie. I saw it when I was 10. I was up for three days worrying about a solar flare up or that the sun would not come up at all. My mom was at her wits end. After this she never let me see any scary movie...I didn't see Jaws until I was an adult. All she really had to do was say "do you remember what happened when you watched....? and I would back down on asking to see certain movies. I sometimes still get a sick feeling in my stomach when I think about it. I am sure my mother regretted ever thinking it was okay for me to watch that movie. What was she thinking anyway :D I would love to get a copy of it just to see it again and see if it was just being 10 that made it seem so bad or if it really was!
