Good potential wasted
12 November 2001 | by cmodzinsSee all my reviews

Now this movie had potential. However, several things were basically done wrong in the movie.

Most of the people in the movie sleep in their clothes. The aliens who control everyone (save the hero) shouldn't understand about things like robes and slippers, yet the hero's wife dons hers before leaving. The town is about 95 percent male as well. The people move at normal speed from time to time, not looking like sleepwalkers at all.

This could have been one of the great mind control movies. Instead, being made for TV in 1970, did not deliver.
