Well- it's better than the comic.
25 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I bought the comic book adaptation of this (some Marvel adaptation) for 10 cents years ago... after seeing the film, I'd say that that was worth a whole 25 cents.

I actually enjoyed the movie; it's another in the long line of preposterous "horror" flicks from the 70's wherein something that will NEVER be terrifying attempts to terrify people... and people actually get scared! I imagine movie execs ran out of disaster flick ideas, ran out of horror ideas, so decided to combine the two... lest they have to pay decent sums to script writers for better plots.

Combine with Atomic Train for a great double-bill about scary transportation devices that spans the decades...
