“...American Novelist...” by Julie Phillips
The Lathe of Heaven:
I was involved in this production at many stages, including casting, script planning and rewriting, and filming.
Our budget was so small we couldn't do retakes, and as for special effects, well, the Alien Space Ships are frisbees, and we had to choose which one of the Alien's arms could move, because it cost too much to make both its arms move. But the directors understood the story and the actors did a beautiful job. The film is an oldie now, but it's still a goodie.
A&E made another film of the same name which was released on September 8th, 2002.
