  1. Not many movies ever get made in Wyoming. This was one of the few that ever have. I remember some friends playing the part of extras as ‘soldiers’ while it was filming. They were so excited to be a part of the movies, and a science fiction movie at that. When it finally hit the theaters I remember being so disappointed in the quality of the film.. it was beyond terrible. But the bugs.. the bugs were very well done lol

  2. I havent listened to this one yet, but back then i loved the movie thought it was great, and havent seen it since, maybe it was just the special effects that did it for me. 😉
