The words used by the General in an attempt to stop the rampaging sea creature are "Klaatu, Barada, Nikto", the same words used to command the robot Gort in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). Also these were the same words Ash was supposed to use in Army of Darkness prior to picking up the necronomicon. See more »

This movie is an insane attempt at perhaps comedy or maybe horror. It tries to be Willy Wonka and the Choclate Factory but fails badly. The only good thing about this movie is that Tori Amos has a cool song in it called "Happy Workers." But If you want that song, get the soundtrack. Stay away from this movie.
