"There is a LOOOOT of wackiness in this movie that is way over the top, but I still think it deserves a little bit more than to not be seen by my friends and family."

Russell McGee

"What we got was bubkiss. We had barely any monster fights and we are stuck with Glen."


"I dug the alien stuff. I was entranced with this weird direction."
