Hard to find, but worth it.
13 January 2004 | by kohl_cakedSee all my reviews

This movie may be hard to find, but go out and look. It just plain has that good feel to it. It's original. It is worth seeing. The special effects are perfect for any of those 70s freaks, like me. Not to mention the fact that it will remind you have doing that awesome project with your friends.
