Election season always leaves me depressed and despairing of the species ability to do anything but throw poo like other primates, so I was happy to see this bit of gee whizzedness.

    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.
