Unbelievable!!!! “is an homage and parody of B-rated Science Fiction movies of the 1950′s and 1960′s. The dialogue is intentionally stilted and wooden as are the special effects. The sets, costumes and props are all purposefully of makeshift quality. However, the plot is solid and propels the characters through the entire story as though it has a serious intent or statement.”
