Robert Urich has just been hired by a high-tech firm to work on a spacesuit for a mannedflight to Venus. Flight to Venus? you ask. Yes. And the suit comes complete with built-in laserblaster and flame thrower. Why? For the simple reason that all this will be necessary for Urichto save his family from the clutches of Susan Lucci, the demon who runs the local country club.I swear I am not making any of this up. Lunatic plot aside, this is very pedestrian 80s made-for-TV horro…. Not one of Wes Craven’s best moments.
The sound is in 2.0, but is “digital stereo” and not surround. There is no rear speaker actionwhatsoever. This might as well be mono. Even the music is front speakers only. The soundquality is clear, even if it isn’t very interesting.
The picture quality screams 80s TV. Hell, it almost screams 70s. Certainly watchable, butthere is some grain. The colours and contrasts are all acceptable, but given the source material,you simply can’t expect anything spectacular, and you don’t get it.
Nothing at all.
Cheap and rather dull, though worth some laughs for the silliness of the plot.
