Cheesy B-movie sci-fi goodness? Yes please!
4 March 2006 | by jph06See all my reviews

Let me say this from the start. This is not a good movie. But it is an entertaining one. Just the sheer shoddiness of some of the effects, acting and directing make this film worth watching, if only so you can make fun of it with a bunch of friends. It has some genuinely funny (if unintentionally so) moments and as long as you don't spend any large amount of money to watch it (I got my copy for 97p) then it is a delightful romp of crappyness.

Personal highlight: when the shrunken father (played by Sam Jones of Flash Gordon fame) is inhaled up his pet dogs nose.

Also, the inconsistency of the size of shrunken characters provides an endless source of amusement.
