    Was very pleasantly surprised by this one. I love being pleasantly surprised. Thought it was some sort of stupid sci-fi horror comedy due to the (intentional?) hilarious title but I was totally hooked from the first minute to the last. Terrific sci-fi thriller, intense and suspenseful, good score and some very interesting shots. A true gem of a film which I wish now that I had found and enjoyed sooner.

    And yeah, I agree with come of the comments here ... Dana Wynter was smokin'.

    A great, paranoid nightmare - even with the "happy ending" tacked on. Has that vintage Twilight Zone feel. Also I must concur with ArthurYanthar! 8 years 2 months ago
