"...written by Joseph Stefano, the guy who wrote 'Psycho,' only this time instead of being about a guy having trouble accepting the death of his Mama, it's a girl having trouble accepting the death of her Daddy. It happened 14 years ago, when she was seven, and ever since then she's wanted to stab men to death with a screwdriver whenever they try to get too close to her. Of course, I've encountered this 'killer screwdriver syndrome' with several women during my lifetime..."-Joe Bob on BLACKOUT

    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.
