Trivia

Production started in 1987, but due to the abundant stop-motion creations and special effects, production took years longer than planned and after several lawsuits involved with the distributors, Vidmark entertainment was given distribution rights. The film was released in 1993 to film festivals and shortly after onto video. See more »

Great special effects, so-so acting.
4 October 2003 | by (Soho, UK) – See all my reviews

Yes this movie has amazing special effects. The monsters are awesome. But the acting is only so-so. Some of the actors appeared to do a good job but there are some that look like they would rather be in a theatre rather than in front of the camera. So if you watch movies for the monsters you should buy this, but if you watch it for good acting you might be disappointed-- Personally I thought it was a pretty good sci-fi film, saved by great special effects, multiple monsters, and some very fine directing. I would rate it a 7/10.
