Very bad student film.Talentless actress and stupid plot....
13 February 2002 | by (Boston Mass) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies made in the late 80's that reflect contempt for viewer intelligence. I can only think after seeing this on late night USA network re -runs that a bunch of drunks got together with fifty bucks one night and slurred.."Lets make a monster movie...I gott'a super eight camera and a barn....." Weird looking actress.
