Was originally given an "R" rating by the MPAA not for violence but for language. As an appeal, producers removed all utterances of the "f" word, with the exception of one - when Kevin Bacon says "Fuck you" to the dead graboid. See more »

What we have in this film is the atmosphere of some of the old 50's B movie classics with an 80's touch added,and very well done at that. We have unique and rather intimidating monsters,as well as a very unique cast of characters to battle them.While Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward may be listed as the leads,I think that Michael Gross practically steals the entire show.While it isn't flawless,it certainly is entertaining enough.I would recommend it to any fan of 1950's B horror films.It is well worth the rental and would be a good addition to anyone's library.
