The first time I saw this, I was stunned. Kind of like when you take a test in school and you have no idea how to read Sumerian. The grainy black and white does not make it noir or surreal; it just looks crappy in addition to not being in color. Can you remember one person’s name in this film? The only one I can remember is Frank Douglas after the shocking (not in a good way) climax to the movie and that you the viewer were not 800 miles away from this toxic mess. Bad editing, no continuity, nameless faces, great sound EFX (Lucasfilm can’t even come close to the phone ring in this one), and illogical events will leave you baffled and bewildered. C’mon! That was the actual space capsule that crash landed? I’ve seen shop projects that looked more realistic. SHEESH! Also, having events (which you don’t actually see) being described by a narrator shows that Rebane has collaborated with Coleman Francis in the past.
Actually, seeing this first on MST made this a lot less painful. Watch it again and you just crack up over how third rate this one is. If only Joel and the bots won the Johnny LongTorso contest cause you can really feel how painful this one was for them!
