    Thank you for this. This is my favorite of Don Dohler’s films, for no other reason that stumbling upon it on Galaxy Theater on Channel 41 late on a Saturday midnight (along with DARK STAR, THE CREMATORS and FOES) some time in 1979 when I was a wee lad of 9.

    Maybe we will see FOES (1977) some time in the future as well.

    There is a blu ray from retromedia filled with extras. Well worth checking out.

    This movie, together with “Fiend” by Don Dohler are 2 of my guilty pleasures.

    They are horrible. Terrible. And yet, deliciously fun at the same time.

    I remember Don Dohler’s film Fiend. I think it would find its place at Rarelust.

    Don Dohler never fails.

    Still so dear to me because not only is it a Local Production (I’m from the DC/MD/VA Area), but Dick Dyzsel–A.K.A. “Captain 20” (for WDCA-TV Channel 20 in Washington, DC) and most famously (and STILL Active!!) “Count Gore DeVol”–my hero since childhood, is in this (and practically ALL Of Don Dohler’s Home-Grown Sci-Fi).
    And now, it’s upgraded. My Saturday Nights have just got wilder.
    Thanks, Rarelust…and you too, “Count Gore”.
