REVIEWS

“Strange and appealing in its undisguised incompetence… There’s no denying that [Wood’s] blunders are unusually creative and oddly expressive.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“Crowned ‘The Worst Film Ever Made’ at New York’s Worst Film Festival in 1980, this deserves its niche in history for featuring the last screen performance of Bela Lugosi, as a ghoul resurrected by space visitors for use against scientists destroying the world with their nuclear tests.”
– Time Out (London)
