Did terrible at the Box Office, it touched something in me....
Yes, this movie did absolutely horrible in theaters when it was released in 1982. I saw it about 1984 on disk (CED) and was surprised. Along with the weird lighting (it was filmed on a HUGE sound stage) and strange character reactions....something in this move touched me deeply. Along with all of it I found a kernal....a morsel......some real gem that made this otherwise trite movie quite rich. Rich enough I saw the movie again....and am considering purchase of a copy.
Apparently I am one of the 5% who actually LIKED the movie....who didn't demand their ticket money back.
We DO exist, you know....
