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. I can tell you that now, because I know, ...

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 »

One of the worst movies ever!
1 August 2017 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

Or 4 screenwriters for a total failure! Jim Davis(Jock Ewing from "Dallas") is not a bad actor. But poor man, in what he was involved in... You can not believe how stupid this is, I do not know how to call it... All the others, Christopher Mitchum, Dorothy Malone, Marcy Lafferty, are more than ridiculous, together with the old veteran of westerns, Mr. Davis. Alone, little Natasha Ryan is OK, because she has the innocence and the naturalness of a little girl. The pony and the horses are also OK, animals and children are always adorable. But the story of those 4, Wayne Schmidt, J. Larry Carroll, David Schmoeller, Steve Neill, and how it was made is more than a shame.
