Viewing Notes

A SyFy (Sci-Fi here) Channel produced Trimark DTV flick that is so cheap 90s DTV it makes me nostalgic for those films I’d watch on cable during that decade.

Of course this isn’t good but not terrible either for what’s an essentially one-location movie. Also it weirdly has Jennifer O’Dell nude as a cutscene throughout the movie (more weird that she’s not identified as Jennifer in the credits but IMDb lists her as such; funny bc as soon as she appears I suspected it was her being a long time THE LOST WORLD tv series fan).

Overall this is pretty dopey (also features Eric Allen Kramer “Thor” from The Incredible Hulk tv show) but I enjoy these low budget flicks.
