When Tony, Linda and Scott go out to dinner, Scott is sketching something. When Linda asks what he's drawing, he scribbles on the picture. A closeup is shown of the drawing: a steel plate penetrated by a pencil, and no scribbling. See more »
The 4D Man, some of the neatest special effects ever.
Wow, I searched for years to get this on DVD. I first saw it back in High School on one of those midnight horror shows in Australia (Deadly Earnest was the host...anyone from Australia remember him??).
I remember being obsessed with the walking through walls special effect, the way in which bits of his clothing would appear first, then the rest of him.
It's funny how a film can stay with you from childhood. The day I got the DVD, I was stoked. Not the greatest film ever made, but I am a die hard fan. I admit to being surprised by the score, very jazzy for such a dark story. I thought Robert Lansing and the rest of the cast were cool. They gave some considerable depth to what was after all very much a 'B' movie.
Check it out!
