Still Appealing 33 years later.
13 December 2011 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

What are the odds of a comet traveling millions of miles through space making a direct hit on Phoenix Arizona? Merlin Olson saves the day by hiding out in a sleeping bag!

I first watched this movie when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I learned to never leave home without a sleeping bag.

Campy and a bit sleepy. Classic 70's doomsday appeal.

Overall good acting and a healthy number of Hollywood stars.

Special effects were decent for a made for TV movie and to some extent holds up today.

I highly recommend this movie, good 70's film.
