I would have to recommend this flick. Great idea, terrible script, fantastic special effects/art direction/& editing, wasted cast, & one truly excellent final scene: such a dichotomy! What they really should have done was chop it down to about an hour (excluding virtually every line uttered by the embarassing Latino stereotype called Santos for starters) and present it as one of those "Outer Limits" episodes on cable. It would then be a thrill ride from start to finish. Otherwise, it drags where it should accelerate. Rent it on DVD and fast forward thru the static parts.
