A dirt cheap sci-fi film from the 70's. For being considered a comedy, there's almost no jokes here. In fact, there's not much of anything going on. This is a short subject movie that's been padded with many dull and uninteresting scenes to stretch it to feature length. You could say that it is technically competent considering it's microscopic budget, but it has no story to offer. Ironically, the writers and director would go on to make many genre classics (some of my all time favorites). I recommend skipping this one out of sheer boredom.

Cheap and rather slapdash debut by John Carpenter. It reeks of post modern humour in the vein of Douglas Adams and there are some very funny moments, but it's also dull and amateurish for extended periods.

Great first effort for John Carpenter. Also features hilarious performance from Alien screenplay writer Dan O'bannon. A classic commentary on the human condition.
