Goofs

When the "Vacuum Cleaner of Doom" flies through the living room window, the curtains are partially open. Later, when Steve goes downstairs to get Jenny's doll, the curtains are closed. The rest of the family hid in the upstairs bedroom, so no one else could have closed them. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Grant Williams: [narrating] Hello? Hello? Can you hear me? Can anyone hear me? I don't know where I am. I don't know where I am in time. I don't know what century I'm in. There's a message that must get through if anyone can hear me. When I was out among you, I always believed, as you do, that time exists in a sequential pattern - one day following another; one year after another; each century following the previous one... but it's not like that at all.

Alternate Versions

A version shown on the UK television channel Movies4Men2 is missing nearly all of the Dinosaur/Alien Monster fight sequence! The First monster appears as it should, it then cuts to the father and son running into the stables, when it cuts back to the monster it is dead with another different monster stood over it which has appeared from nowhere. From this point the film continues as normal. See more »

Well, There Goes Another Hour and a Half of My LIfe
15 June 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

As others have said, this is a film without a plot. It's one of those things where you put a family in a house in a remote place and start doing things to them. There are all sorts of things but nothing is ever explained. There is a big fight between two claymation monsters, but what do they have to do with the swirling lights that keep showing up, or the gunlike thing that points at people. We meet a couple of little creatures at the beginning but then we never see them again. And what does a triple-nova have to do with anything? The closing statement by grandpa is made without any knowledge of anything. And where are they going? And why them? And where is everyone else? I know it has something today with a time vortex, but the principle characters just bumble around. They don't really learn anything. Or do they? They don't bother to tell us.
