beyond "not a good movie"
20 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I always take the "this is the worst movie ever made" critiques on IMDb with a massive grain of salt... after all, there are threads stating that "War of the Worlds" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still" deserve that moniker. Needless to say, this film most heartily deserves the title of "One of the absolute worst films ever made". If it had been done in fun, with a light touch, as a comedic film, for kids, it MIGHT, just might have been forgivable. This film plods along, taking itself deathly seriously with some of the most dreadful acting I have ever witnessed (and yes, I've watched tons of Hammer films, and even Ed Wood films!). Just take everyone's advice, and steer clear of this stinker.
