Merzbau Donald Cammell tag please! And seconding the love for this movie.
BHWW I remember reading the novel back when before I was awared that Dean Koontz was an official best-seller type, before that his early career was as an up and coming sci-fi author - he even contributed a story to the second of Harlan Ellison's 'Dangerous Visions' anthologies.
memedumpster The practical effects in this movie blew my mind as a child. The giant walking friendship detector is awesome.
