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.
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
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!
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.
