A different movie that has the late great Chuck Connors!
21 February 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The film is very different and good at the same time. Chuck Connors was great. Marc Singer was good and I thought he looked a lot like Kevin Bacon in the film.This movie looked at a different way of aliens. If you like Chuck Connors and strange films about aliens then see High Desert Kill!
