Trivia

The film has many references to Homer's "Odyssey". For example, the township is called "New Ithaca". The chief villain is a Cyclopean one-eyed murderer. The female decoy who stops the prison van is referred to as "a siren". The hero clears his home of invaders, as Ulysses does with Penelope's suitors, using a bow and arrows. See more »

If this were a Sci-fi, it wouldn't be good enough for MST3K
16 October 2000 | by (Waynesville, NC) – See all my reviews

After reviewing a copy of the directers cut, I can safely say that "Puma man" and "Hobgoblins" are far better movies. With it's pointless start with "Skull" in his prison cell, and his yelling when the lights go out, not exactly cluing you in on anything useful. Following that is Jennifer King (played by Nadia Capone)taking a few liberties with her sleeping husband David, (Robert Bidaman). If this was a Sci-Fi flick, it would have not been shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's not good enough.
