Goofs

When Det. Sgt. Siroleo is advised to have the energy being lured back to the pit by having all power cut off, he makes a call requesting this be done. When the energy being is returning to the pit, he is somehow able to activate the switch closing the door to the pit before power is restored. See more »

Prof. Stuart Peters: It might be easier to destroy it.

Dust Energy
11 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Michael Forest and Scott Marlowe stars as two brothers named Stuart and Jory Peters who have traveled to a mysterious experimental power station named Norco that Stuart has a new job at. Unfortunately, the station, which is run by a sinister man named Dr. Bloch(played by Kent Smith), has been taken over by a mysterious energy being created out of dust(!) When Stuart first goes missing, then later returns home with a new pacemaker found in his body, a police detective(played by Edward Asner) investigates the case where it seems the Norco staff are not what they claim... Strange episode is far too vague and talky to succeed, with some quite silly elements, though some atmosphere. A real curio.
