Richard Matheson disliked the film, calling it "terrible" and unfunny. See more »
At the end of the movie a TV shows the 'final moments' of Pat before she disappeared. This is footage from earlier in the movie, shown from cinematic angles. This footage would not exist. See more »

When ABC broadcast the film in 1983, there are scenes that were not in the theatrical cut: Dr. Ruth, communicating with patients, on monitors. During these scenes, Pat was finding ways to get out of her cage. Also, this scene includes Lily Tomlin's role as Edith Ann (Little Girl, which she played on her Broadway shows). Finally, Pat Kramer tries to reach the switches, to turn on the monitor but, she turned it on with her foot. See more »
It's films like this that make you wonder if directors actually look at at the movie when it's finished. This spoof of the 50's sci-fi genre is just plain awful. With talent like Oscar nominees Lily Tomlin and Ned Beatty in front of the camera, you gotta wonder why they signed on in the first place. The movie starts out fairly bad but then nose-dives faster than you can say "tedious". Give this pathetic attempt at film a miss. My IMDb rating: 3.1/10.
