The shrinking sequence!
3 August 2002 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

Okay, so it won't win any cinema awards. But there is something enticing about this movie. Perhaps i just like bad B-Movies that have a good plot and a few original moments in them. The shrinking sequence is worth watching the movie for! Quite original, funny, and just plain enjoyable to a select B-Movie audience. They need to release this on DVD!
