Capsule Review:    

Ebenezer Scrooge step aside, the wealthy old bastard in this story is even less likeable than you were (before the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future visited). He lives in the penthouse suite of a hospital and has invested millions of dollars in a talented doctor's research into developing a computerized artificial heart. The miserable miser's quest to cheat death goes against the laws of nature and the world beyond. A force crosses over from the afterlife and causes havoc. Whatever it is, it appears as living electricity, burns like freezing cold, and is able to infect equipment and people.

The big problem with a self-serving billionaire owning all of the research is that he threatens to have it destroyed unless he gets his way. I am not certain that could happen, even in a society that places more emphasis on individual gain than the public good, but the threat does separate the billionaire from the rest of the human race. Even the old man's explanation of why he refuses to accept death does little to balance the scales. It is nigh impossible to commiserate with the selfish creep.

Things I Learned From This Show:  

Green Dot Never cut the grounding prong off of the plug for your defibrillation unit.
Green Dot Women with weak hearts should avoid exposure to well-endowed male strippers.
Green Dot Elevators are equipped with emergency brakes that can be activated by a switch on the control panel.

Stuff To Watch For:  

Green Dot 14 mins - "Send me up a new electrician. This one is done."
Green Dot 22 mins - Harlan is 102? Has he been eating spit and drinking vinegar for the last ninety years?
Green Dot 36 mins - I would be covering him up with a rubber tarp, not that cotton sheet.

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.
