I heard about mini black holes in the Bermuda Triangle, But near a farm in Wisconsin? Why do these odd things normally happen in small towns in movies? An old question I know, but I live in small towns all my life. The most odd thing I seen in these places was...give me a minute...all I can think of is a dead possum in the engine of my niece's car. And it kept turning my garden into a salad too. Was going to hunt it down too. Her old car was a real piece of junk breaking down all the time, but it did something good there.

Steve Brodie, the "star" of this gem, as Dr. Vance, had some pretty impressive credits earlier in his career. He's the guy Jane Greer shoots while Robert Mitchum and him are fighting in noir classic "Out of the Past." Too bad he ended up in this kind of dreck.

What I've never been able to figure out about this movie -- well, there are many things I can't figure out about this movie -- is what the whole thing with the preacher was about. Was Rabane trying to imply that this was some kind of divine judgment? That seems unlikely, since we get a scientific explanation for what happened, even if it makes no sense and involves a "gateway to hell." Was Rabane trying to get all artsy on us?

I love how much that scientist lady fails to sound intelligent. It starts with that very odd remark about how a teaspoon of super-dense matter "could only be lifted with a giant crane". Who talks like that? Are theoretical giant cranes a superlative scientific benchmark? She might as well be saying "In technical terms, a neutron star could beat up Superman."

im sure someone else noticed this but horrifying blonde guy who owns the farm the spiders land on is also a witch burner in Touch Of Satan. Im actually impressed by how nauseating his portayal of this character is. Its hard to drum up that much hate/disgust/twitchtiness without pure talent. Maybe Phillip Seymore Hoffman or Crispin Glover . I mean he is just oozing with spousal abuse, lechery and incest. But, aside of that, this is one of my all time faves. The super sexist scientist guy with Barbara Hale has a lot of D bag competition.
