This 1971 movie was about 20 years ahead of it's time in terms of computers and their use/misuse.  It really predicted computer fraud, fake identities,  hacking,  sabotage of hardware systems like elevators and more.  The people who wrote it were highly intelligent educated and experts in the computer field who had real vision.

It also starred James Olson,  who started in another technology thriller,  'The Andromeda Strain'.

When. Peoeple talk of SF predicting the future,  they need to talk about this movie.

Here' s some in detpth reviews some with spoilers.  This made for tv movie is apparently available online free and I recommend it. Dean Stock well. Makes an excellent for the creepy intellectual archetype.

Saw this in high school, on a $1 double feature DVD (remember those?) I liked it.

Trivia: the computer used in this movie was the same obsolete model used in The Time Tunnel, Lost in Space, & Sleeper.

I have this in a Mill Creek 50 movie pack. I think it's a pretty decent movie.

    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.
