When I picked this up at local video store, I was under the impression that it was going to be based on fact (the true story). I should have read the box a little closer. The writer used the "scenario" of nightstalker killings and threw in his own "what if" storyline. The acting was terrible, yet special effects were good. Set design very good. Makeup excellent. Lots of pre-p/c innuendos. Way too much filler! Overall a big snore & just stupid. Had they spent as much money on the script as they did special effects, could've been much better. Oh yea, forgot to say VERY PREDICTABLE! Factual made-for-tv version much better & believe me... that's not saying much!
