A jet pilot (Jeff Morrow), on a test run, encounters a UFO during the flight. Of course, no one believes him. That is, until they witness what the unidentified object is--a humongous, vulture-like alien bird that flies at supersonic speed. This is a weird movie because all of the actors play everything straight--but when we see clips of the monster, which is basically a goofy looking puppet--you can't help but chuckle.
I would love to see someone re-do the special effects for this movie, like what was done with ROCKETSHIP X-M a while back. It would give it a bit more punch.
