I didn't realize 11 other people watched this movie, 16 January 2012
Author: lrkiel from United States

This is my favorite bad movie of all times. When the video store was selling off it's stock of movies that were not renting, I bought it. I had rented it two or three times previously.

I love Sci Fi, having grown up in the 50's and 60's where things like a nuclear attack were more apt to happen, so watching this was a combination of relief that we avoided this, and laughing at the seriousness of the production.

Over all, this is the yardstick by which all other good creative "Bad" movies MUST be measured against.

If you can find it, watch it.
