Little story about this film. Back in the late 1980s when it came out, my older brother and I rented it from now defunct "mom and pop" style video store up the street. What was interesting was that the film was simultaneously playing at the closest thing we had to a actual grind house theater in town. So yes, there was indeed a time where a zero budget film could be on video, while at the same time also hit the second run theaters.

Oddly, the screen inside the SC-37 shows both shuttles from a third person view. I am not sure how that works.

They forgot to retrieve the IMAX camera. Happens all the time in bad space movies.

Now, if I were to write a story in which an alien is converted to Christianity (I wouldn't, I'm just playing with ideas here), I sure as hell wouldn't have it convert by reading the Bible. After all, that doesn't necessarily work for humans, and we've got (some) cultural context!

No, I would make my alien something that absorbs information by consuming flesh, like the one in _The Creeping Terror_. The human crew figures out that the alien is using information from the dead crewmembers' brains against them, and that its attitude towards humanity has been influenced by the mental state its victims were in when they were killed. A virtuous Christian crewmember asks herself, "WWJD?" and decides that to save humanity, she should allow the alien to devour her, while keeping herself in as serene a mental state as she can. (Naturally, there'd be a scene of her standing before the alien with her arms held out, reciting prayers to steady herself.) The alien, absorbing all of this, is suitably impressed and decides that it should look into this religion that so inspired her.

I only did it in self defense..  I hope you all respect my choice to help people instead of killing them.  And to stop making fun of my movie..  I acted my little slimy, sluggish heart out at the end, so give me a break!

Say what you want about the movie, but I just love the kind of background music in these old 80's movies. Including the stuff Roger and Cal are listening to when they are drinking together.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
