Sub - "B" Movie
5 May 2017 | by crandalls-76404See all my reviews

Save your money, unless you can watch this movie for free. Even then, you may waste your time watching it. I'm ashamed to say I watched it all the way through. I wasted valuable personal time. It is one of the poorest motion pictures I've ever watched. I'd actually have to say it is the worst. Yes, it is that bad! The only reason I gave it a score of two (2 out of 10) is out of respect to the fact that this film was completed and distributed for viewing. That took effort. And it is that effort that I salute, but nothing more.

No matter how hard I try, I cannot imagine a crew of adults producing and completing this piece of cinematography. It's awful, across-the-board, across all aspects of movie industry cinematography. The acting is especially poor. People do not act and react, in reality, as they did in this movie. Hello Director...

The Alien - a five year old would have better imagination. The only "Alien" to ever look like that would have to come from the planet "Earth". The effects were on the level of an early 60's Godzilla film.

I'm just upset by the fact that this film was completed. Because that meant it would have to be distributed, in an attempt to generate income for the sole purpose of paying for the cost of making this film. I cannot think of a single Drive-In that would show this film, as it is that bad.
