Somehow, Gord (Jason Whiting) messes up the pick up of a bulldozer - and ends up being killed by the driverless crawler. The next day, the bulldozer turns up at the construction site anyhow, even if (dead) Gord and his truck are still at the rental place. Everybody's rather surprised, but they want to get the job done as quickly as possible.

Thing is, nobody can get the bulldozer going, and yet it manages to burn a worker (Mike Paterson), which later makes the man mutate, and kills a few people more, at night when nobody's looking. I should maybe point out here that the bulldozer also has a set of tentacles, hidden somewhere under its hood.

Everyone on the construction site is driven nuts by the constant disappearing of people and also by the crawler that doesn't work (during the day) but seems to have something odd about it, but the bulldozer also eventually makes a friend, Carl (Keir Cutler), a rather single-minded brute who for reasons unknown starts to worship the thing, and even defend it as if it was his.

Eventually, Jimmy (Deke Richards), the ex-alcoholic foreman of the site puts two and two together and pays the rental place a visit, and he's in for a surprise ...

What a perfectly charming monster movie!

Granted, it makes next to no sense at all in the context of the real world, its premise is as implausible as it is borderline silly - but if you're prepared to accept a tentacled bulldozer from another dimension (and why wouldn't you, after all it's just a movie) you get yourself a nicely told piece of genre cinema populated by interesting and fleshed out characters and carried by a robust directorial effort that's well-versed in creating and upholding tension and suspense. And let's face it, the concept of a lethal tentacled bulldozer creature alone sounds like loads of fun.

Recommended, actually.
