  • A gloriously lead-footed excursion into time travel with all the accoutrements of 1950s science fiction: an absurd plot, cliched characters, corny effects and a race against time to save mankind. show more

  • An old formula made fresh. show more

  • Retro in a refreshing sort of way, a return to those sci-fi films of the 1950s, filled with cheesy special effects and over-the-top acting, but with a gem of an idea at its core, and all done with just enough wit and inventiveness to keep audiences in the cheap seats happy. show more

    based on a Ray bradbury story and it's a flop? I'll have to check this one out and see if it matches Battlefield: Earth for "pure manure".
