Foam and foam
1 September 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Another strange entry into the space 1999 franchise. The effects were almost the whole episode based on the use of foam coming from a brain wandering around in outer space.

Although this is the most cheesy episode somehow i did like it a lot because you can see that it must have been big fun to act into a lot of foam. Don't be bothered about the story itself because it' s rather crazy and unbelievable. The whole moonbase is being attacked by the "brain" and the effects were again rather simple but her it did work, guess they had a lot of cleaning afterwards removing all that foam.

But not only that, there's suspense too by the use of an eagle full of explosives hitting back to the moonbase itself. I liked this a lot.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 2/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
