On the edge of our galaxy, a spectacular trinary supernova (three stars exploding at once) occurs sending a stream of cosmic energy to earth. It manifests itself in a startling light show which monetarily surrounds an isolated and uninhabited house in the desert.
Three generations of a family – headed by patriarch Grandpa Grant (Jim Davis who starred as Jock Ewing in Dallas) later comes to occupy the house and discover that the interior has been torn apart by a mysterious force.
The young granddaughter, Jenny (Natasha Ryan) goes to play behind the home and discovers an alien pyramid, eerily emitting a glowing green light and a musical communication.
The pyramid then disappears and is replaced by a miniature duplicate of itself, which Jenny pockets.
That evening, the parents witness a pair of glowing UFOs streaking across the sky. Inside the house, the child is awakened by a small gremlin-like creature which invites her to play. Suddenly, as an alien probe floats in through the window, the imp vanishes.
The house is subsequently sucked through a vortex and moved through time and space to the planet of claymation (which explains the dinosaurs in the back garden).
With decent effects, this might have been watchable. Sadly, the stop-motion work is laughable and so is this confused movie as a whole.
It’s basically 90 minutes of your life you’ll never get back.
Shot in Spain it also stars Peyton Place’s Dorothy Malone and Chris Mitchum (Robert’s son).
