I got to see a couple ads for this during ECW. I usually just marvel at how bad SyFy original movie ads are, but this one actually made me laugh and interested me in this film. Any movie where Deborah Gibson is the main selling point, even above a giant octopus, is good enough for me.

Probably not family-friendly for its time, but compared to today, where 8-11 PM is all dirty cartoons or cop shows about rape, abduction, or murder, it seems pretty tame. Probably more a reason, as others have stated, not to reboot it at all.
