Trivia

Website DVD Talk states "the movie opens with a Space Shuttle mission, Hangar 18 (1980) ginally] premiering nearly a year before the first actual shuttle missions. (The film does include experimental free flight footage of the Enterprise, however; that craft never went into orbit.)". See more »

Goofs

Reporting on the autopsy, Dr. Michaels states that humans have "an appendix, a tailbone, and a Harderian Gland". The Harderian Gland is only found in the ocular orbits of vertebrates that possess a nictitating membrane, which humans do not have. See more »

Pre-X-Files.....Maybe?
25 February 1999 | by (Lafayette, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Ok, no, this isn't one of the greatest movies of all time by any means, but it does have some very interesting theories and suggestions, ala the "X-Files". If you were between 10-14 during the late 70's and early 80's, you'll remember the movies that dealt with such mysteries as Bigfoot, Noah's Ark, and (didn't this one just scare the be-jesus out of you!) Nostradomas, narrated by Orsen Welles. I think the movie is entertaining, even though it is "dated" by today's standards. I also don't think it's a strech to say this could have been the very birth of the X-Files as we now know it.
