The genius of this low-budget attempt at sci-fi was that it used the same actors and sets as the sketch comedy "You can't do that on Television" but was dead serious. The result resembled a nightmare in which everything starts out normal but then turns and becomes dark and untenably weird. It was like the writers and cast of "H.R Pufnstuf" decided to put on a production of Carmen.

It has been a long time since I've seen this movie, something like 19 years, but it was well wrought enough to stay with me. I think that the fact that the actors and sets were already so familiar to the the "You Can't do that on Television" viewer leant the movie a bizarre normalcy which circumvented the normal defense mechanisms.
