'Moontrap' is a wonderful item from those glorious days when people with imagination could make a cheap sci-fi movie and expect to find a certain audience in the home video market.

Whatever the case, it must be admitted that the story... rattles along nicely, while the film actually boasts some pleasing special effects.

Audience Reviews for Moontrap


this movie is so bad its almost good...some of the actors seem to be ordinary joes plucked off the street....amateurish with a weak plot and an awful script...

Hilarious. I actually really enjoyed this when I first saw it though I'm sure now I'd find it pretty cheesy. God, I was an idiotic teenager who'd like anything with a monster in it (and Bruce Campbell for that matter).

Not too thrilling. Laughable. Walter Koenig in this low-budget slow-paced alien-themed sci-fi thriller - fails to excite.
