Not great but still quite enjoyable.

Beleve it or not, there were a number of good made for tv movies made during the 70's. This was one of them.
The idea for the story is a good one. An unknown unseen life-
force, alien to our earth. Is accidentaly released from its milleniums of slumber. It starts attacking by entering a bulldozer brought by a constrution crew sent to build some sort of project on a remote island.
The rest of the movie is spent with the crew trying to stay alive, while fighting this unseen evil force.
This type of plot device,(murderous machines) was popularized by Steven Spielberg's breakthrough tv movie "Duel", also made in the 70's.
While not a great movie,(only 3 stars). Its still would be a nice addition to any collector's library.
Hopefully it will become available on dvd or vhs.
