It has been many years since I saw this film on "USA Up All Night" (with Gilbert Gotfried at that time, I believe) and I would love to see it again. It's a moody SF show with some startling visuals (the plane wreckage), some cheesy effects (the planet control center and Einstein), and a plodding feel to it that elicits a strong feeling of tension. However, what I remember the most about it was that it moved back and forth between French and English very quickly and with no subtitles, but someone who only knows English could understand it just fine. This really contributed to the other-worldly feel of the movie.

I'm not sure how it got an 8.1 here, I would rate it more around the 5-6 range. But, I would like to see it again if I could.
