Amen to that. I bought it cheaply a while back thinking it might have some entertainment value in spite of The age of the special effects. Unfortunately the script was awful, the movie deadly dull(not even Funny-bad). In fact like a lot of other films the effects were the best thing about it and had no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Incidentally if you want to see some good 'classic SF' try "The Forbidden Planet" or "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" now those ARE good.
