Goofs

When Ms. Matusik has a heart attack, the paddles used to try and revive her are placed in the wrong spots on her chest. One paddle is supposed to be placed on the upper right of the patient and the other on the lower left at the base of the ribs. This allows for proper current travel through the heart. But both paddles are placed on her upper chest at her shoulders. This would do nothing for the patient. Also, you can see the actor jump before she is "shocked." See more »

Quotes

Doctor Paul Novotny: Bill Hardy has been a good test subject for us before.
Alex Gardner: Oh, he's a steel worker. I'll probably wind up in some bad beer commercial.

lightweight fun!
19 August 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I agree with most of the posters here. This is lightweight entertainment but it's great fun, especially if you like your SF. Performances are reasonable

  • there's some action, a love interest and some nice effects. There's also


some pretty bad effects - I'm talking about the snake man which was like a rubbish version of Ray Harryhausen (of whom I'm a fan, but this just sucked.)

A special mention goes to the music which will not be on your list of top sound tracks.

Don't expect anything much - just sit back and enjoy this slice of 80's pulp SF.
