Almost makes Plan 9 seem workable.
19 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

It's almost sad to see dependable British comedy actors like Sid James and Terry Scott involved with such rubbish. Even they are just going through the motions. The Daleks must have been the highlight of Terry Nation's career; reckon he scribbled parts of this screenplay in his sleep.

The real star is the Phantom II? hearse, UW 3000, used in the filming. Where is she now - known to the RREC?
