Storyline

Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

The location of the base is supposed to be so secret that even the pilots bringing people to it don't know exactly where it is; the computer guides the helicopter in the last leg of the journey. But there is a Coca-Cola machine on the base. Who refills it and collects the money? See more »

Quotes

Joanna Merritt: Now from this point on, photoelectric cells sound a warning when unauthorized personnel enter the corridor. Oh, and there are hidden television cameras along the ceiling.
David Sheppard: You mean to say they're watching us?
Joanna Merritt: All the time.
David Sheppard: They're interfering with my impulses.
Joanna Merritt: What impulses, Dr. Sheppard?
David Sheppard: Well, I can't mention them. They're unauthorized, but they're nice that way.

Interesting Choice Of Names!
11 March 2001 | by lacarcagneSee all my reviews

Not a bad little movie, with a touch more suspense than most movies of this type. The names of the two robots that are controlled by.....,well you should see the movie for that, Gog and Magog, comes from the Bible, Rev.20:8. They are the two nations to be led by Satan in the final battle at Armageddon against the kingdom of God. Is Ivan Tors trying to tell us that the Soviet Union is SATAN? Well, it was 1954! Worth the time if you can find it.
