Goofs

Early in the movie the alien leader reveals that he is keeping a fleet hidden behind the Moon. He then attacks the friendly alien base through subterfuge, which does not go particularly well. This is in spite of his fleet outnumbering them by many times, and that they could have just attacked the Earth directly. See more »

I saw this-back in '77...
19 September 2003 | by gazzo-2See all my reviews

It was poopoo then, it Has to be poo poo now. Christopher Lee as a RamaTut Alien, bad F/X saucers, stuff right outta those goofy 'The Outer Space Connection/Chariots of the Gods' '70s UFO crap flix, etc. Even has Helen Shaver, a fat guy on a tractor, a cute brunette Alien nude chick and the Man from Uncle w/ his 9 buck Calculator saving the day. Def. one for the ages.

Where were Tom Servo and Cro when ya needed them?

* maybe. Real bad.
