Legendary low-budget mogul Roger Corman made a somewhat inauspicious return to the director's chair for the first time in nearly twenty years (unless one counts his uncredited participation in "pickup" shoots for several New World Pictures productions) for this quaint sci-fi/horror outing, based on the popular novel by Brian Aldiss. Opening in the year 2031, the story begins with scientist Joseph Buchanan (John Hurt) working on a top-secret military project that creates a rift in time in space,

about what you'd expect from Roger Corman... without the boobs
Has its problems, but what a cast! Kudos to film critic F.X. Feeney for scripting a Corman flick.
Sometimes even bad Corman can at least be fun Corman. This is not one of those times.
Good performances can't save it. Palm trees in Switzerland are a nice touch, though
More 'weird' than it is 'scary' - but it's generous with the weirdness.
