Originally intended as a low-budget horror movie about an evil alien. After the success of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), the producers made the alien into a lovable character, and added a kid who befriends it. Director Juan Piquer Simón was not satisfied with the final result.
Rick: It stinks!
The alien attacks Bill and Brian at the ranger's station. Bill escapes in his truck. The alien, walking very slowly, beats him back to the house.
