The Doomsday Machine Details


Poorly written, directed and photographed, The Doomsday Machine is one of those cheap sci-fi farragos which rounds up several faded stars and then gives them nothing to work with. Among the trapped former luminaries are [[Performer~P146648~Denny Miller~dennymiller]], [[Performer~P57566~Mala Powers~malapowers]], [[Performer~P72782~Bobby Van~bobbyvan]] and [[Performer~P116755~Henry Wilcoxon~henrywilcoxon]]. The plot (for lack of a better word) involves a spaceship and its squabbling crew. The space travellers must bury the hatchet long enough to try to save the Earth from destruction. Beware: That alluring videocassette on your local rental shelves titled Escape From Planet Earth is really Doomsday Machine in disguise. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
