Hmmm... this sure sucked.
17 August 2001 | by justinc79See all my reviews

We rented this movie, expecting to see deformed monkeys and other things (as the box showed) but instead, we got almost 2 hours worth of people saying the SAME THINGS THAT WERE ESTABLISHED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE, one weird deformed monkey, and an ending that made no sense. It also seems that they've cut dialogue and other information to save time, because there are a lot of odd and jump cuts. And how pathetic the characters sounded saying "Sorry!" whenever someone was pronounced dead. This is BOUND for Mystery Science Theater 3000... too bad it was cancelled.

I'm sure the good votes this got, was from cast members, investors, or friends of cast members, and investors.
