Daniel Day Lewis lobbied hard for role of Bradley Turner. Tobe Hooper refused to cast him as he thought he "lacked range and screen presence". See more »

It takes a lot to sever a spine.
You see, a crocodile's teeth intertwine.
They snap shut with forty pounds of pressure.
I can't tell you how bad this is, sheriff.

When I saw this on the SciFi Channel, I started to turn it off but then I kept thinking, "This has got to get better." But, no, it kept getting worse. The acting is so awful that it doesn't even play as camp. The teens scream their lines and the older actors (used loosely) are no better. Why, the teens can't even cuss right. Since they are supposed to be from New York City, you would think they could at least do that. Maybe they're Park Avenue teens. They make Joe Namath look good.
What upset me most about this turkey was when I looked up who was responsible for it. Would you believe Tobe Hooper? Has he been smoking wacky weed again! This is a long way down hill from "Poltergeist." And the special effects are an abomination. Some of the cheaper sci-fi flicks of the 50's look like Star Wars compared to this one. Apparently the SciFi Channel edited parts of the film. But I doubt if that makes much difference here. Take my advice and watch an earlier Tobe Hooper creation, such as "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre."
