Availability[edit]

The movie was released on videocassette in 1989 by New World. The tape itself is notable for having trailers for the films Warlock and The Punisher, both of which were passed on to separate studios after New World fell into bankruptcy. In 1991, Starmaker Video released a tape in the EP Mode. A DVD has been released in Australia, but as of December 22, 2009, no plans for a Region 1 DVD have been announced.

Critical reception[edit]

From All Movie Guide:

Lame, predictable story which wastes a talanted cast.[1]
