Trivia

The picture is not one of the film's director Kevin Connor's favorite movies that he has directed. Connor has said that this is because the film's producers re-cut his version after he had submitted it with the depth of the relationships between the characters being lost. See more »

Great Guilty Pleasure!
11 October 2003 | by (Newport News, VA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie and I hate myself for loving it. I highly recommend it, but I feel guilty for doing so. It's sooo bad, it's good! I'd love to do a Mystery Science Theatre commentary on it. From Doug McClure's semi-nude scene to the giant mechanical crabs, this is a must-see movie after you've seen all the really good stuff, and there's nothing else available in the video store. Just don't take it seriously and you'll love it, too!
