Goofs

In the final scene, Evelyn moves into the rear of the helicopter to get some Cracker Jacks, and is attacked by one of the reptile men (which apparently got aboard before they took off). During the attack, Harry and the large front cockpit window can be seen to one side. Also plainly visible through the glass is the entire greenery of the jungle, right outside the helicopter; even though mere seconds before it showed them flying at a high altitude for quite some time. Apparently this scene was filmed during the time the lift off scenes were shot. See more »

A horror movie that frightens you with its waste of talent
14 December 1998 | by karkinosSee all my reviews

This was pretty much a character driven movie. I watched the entire movie only because I found the characters interesting. The acting by the main characters was fine given the constraints of a low budget horror flick. I would recommend watching this movie only if you want to see another good examine of the uncouth man uncivilizing the resistant and cultured woman. Otherwise, try to ignore the weak "special effects".
