This disturbing film was almost banned in South Africa due to the film's ending where the attempt to kill the bad guy is an epic fail  Buggedout on the part of all concerned. I corresponded with its' director Jack Gold several years ago and was able to tell him how much it disturbed me and especially post 9-11 with the horrific airplane crash into the building.

A very scary and uneasy viewing experience: the DVD I bought is a beautiful transfer and was well worth the money.  Smile

I remember seeing the advertisements for this on TV during the movies brief theatrical run.  I wanted to see it, but it disappeared from theaters quickly.

Nice trev, never heard of this but I tend to always enjoy thriller type movies from this era

    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.
