The really bad thing about this movie is that the opening scene is the best scene in the entire movie. The movie goes down hill from there. Tor Johnson is supposedly a scientist defecting to the U.S. I suppose the people chasing after Johnson are supposed to be KGB or spies. Regardless, the protection he got from his bodyguards was pitiful, but did give Johnson an excuse to wander off into the nearby desert, which also happens to be where nuclear testing regularly occurred.
Now, you might wonder why this particular nuclear testing site was open to tourists. I am going to have to let you speculate on that one, because I have no good answers. The really unfortunate thing for Tor Johnson is that he missed the souvenir stand at the entrance to the site. You know, the one with the two-headed lizards and the replica giant Gila monsters known to have been created by nuclear radiation. I digress.
The radiation turns Tor/the Soviet scientist into a mindless killing machine. Tor then stumbles about the desert silently. As it turns out, director Francis Coleman made the movie very silently because he filmed none of the movie with a soundtrack.Read more ›
I recently picked it up as part of the 50 Horror Classics Collection, which I highly recommend, and watched the movie all by itself. I'm so glad I never plopped down the twenty or so bucks to buy this stinker!! Without the comic relief provided by Mike and the Bots, this movie is virtually unwatchable. I love cheesy B movies, but this thing is off the Richter scale! Where do I begin? From no soundtrack to a plot that moves along slower than molasses going uphill in February! Plus I've never seen such a collection of homely, unattractive people in a single movie in my life. From the mother of the "Lost Boys" to the cop that jumps from the airplane to the "Cutie-pie" in the baby doll, you'd think that Coleman Francis must have picked them up standing in line at the DMV. I think you could force confessions out of hardened crimnals by forcing them to watch this thing over and over again!
Finally, I just have a question to ponder. After Tor killed that guy fixing his VW by the side of the road, how did he manage to get into the backseat to strangle his wife without her knowing it? Tor couldn't even fit into backseat of a Volkswagen! Well, that just goes to show what a joke BYF is? Watch at your own risk!!
