Very Memorable
21 September 2005 | by Ares-10See all my reviews

The previous post explains it all very well. I too saw this in a classroom around 1990. I have never forgotten it. I remember it being very low on color and remember a greenhouse and even some people with gas masks acting almost like beasts. It was very creepy and therefore memorable. Let's hope the world doesn't end up like this movie thinks it could. The film might have even been shown in my school on a filmstrip projector rather than a VCR. I have been trying to find a copy of this for years and I just realized that IMDb is cool enough to at least mention it. I would recommend this in a second because you will never forget it.
