In a secret government lab, Dr. Alan Woodman conducts experiments to develop a violent alien into a revolutionary fighting machine. The trial fails and the creature escapes into compound, killing everyone in its path. Only Woodman and his assistant Charlie survive. After locking down the facility, they send out a distress call and the top covert military force responds. Led by the beautiful but tough Rita Talon, the team has been instructed to locate and destroy the creature. Working with Woodman and Charlie, they begin the hunt but quickly realize that they have to deal with more than just the creature. Written by
This gets my vote as the worst story, worst production and worst acting that I've seen since Plan Nine From Outer Space (1959) from Ed Wood.
No it's an insult to Ed that I even compare this ludicrous turkey with any of his movies.
What possessed the producers to put up the money to create this laughing stock? One can only speculate about the motives and intelligence of those with money who wanted to bankroll a story that has a hit squad sent in to The Ultimate Secure Facility to eliminate everybody, including an Invincible Monster manufactured by a demented scientist, Dr. Woodman (John Savage)? John Savage once appeared in good, if not great, movies. What a come-down... Hey, this film gives every action-horror flick a bad name -- and my only regret is that the monster didn't kill all of them.
Most of the film has the squad running around from level 1 through to level 52, trying to find the Monster while also trying to make sure that it doesn't eat them up. I suppose, however, that for the producer and director, action was the watch-word. Give the fans(?) enough and they won't notice the lousy script, acting, effects, and a monster that looks like a joke.
See this movie at your peril. It's so bad, you might die laughing...
