"What a time to run out of sugar"
on 24 October 2008
Just watched this movie again for the first time in thirty years, haven't seen it since it was a favorite sunday afternoon flick when I was about ten and unbelievably, IT STILL ROCKS!
I have read some reviews about the cheesy effects but then there's something great about a movie where your imagination is required to fill in the gaps. I haven't seen a movie in years that left me on tender hooks from start to finish like this. Truly magnificent sci-fi classic.
To see this movie in restored 235.1 widescreen is a sheer joy and the two channel stereo track works perfectly on a surround system, it's the closest you will get to seeing the origional cinema release. The movie score is intense and what more can you say for a movie that has Raquel Welsh in a skin tight 'white' wet suit.
