THE PLOT:

The Davies are expecting a little miracle, but get a tiny terror instead. The little monster murders the doctors and nurses that delivered him, guess he took offense to being slapped on the butt. Then escapes.

The Father takes it upon himself to hunt down the monster and bring him to justice.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Well, let me start off by apologizing for the lack of pictures. The little monster is barely seen and in the scenes you can see aren't very clear so I couldn't really get any good shots. Which is my only major complaint about the movie, I wish we saw more of the little monster. But the story works and the cast does a great job and I give it...7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, I think even in 1974 they could have shown more of the tiny terror and the story does lag at points. So for those reasons I'm giving the movie 7 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ SUSPENSE (Plenty of suspense.)
+ FRIGHTS (Plenty of frights.)
+ EFFECTS (What there was of them works.)
+ STORY (The story works.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- MORE (We both think there should have been more of the little creature seen.)
- LAGS (It lags in places.)

AND FINALLY....

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on this kind of movie, then this isn't for you.)
