The worst remake ever made.
17 March 1999 | by (Sacramento) – See all my reviews

The 1960 film is so wonderful. Why would they remake it so badly?

The effects aren't perfect in the original Film, but they are a hundred times worse in the TV movie.

The actors are annoying.

The costumes on the Morlocks are amazingly just as bad as the worst sci-fi flicks of the 50's.

Sorry if you like this movie. I just think it's awful.
