There are some bad films that are entertaining because they are so ineptly made, but The Astral Factor is just tedious, plodding, and lethargic. The scenes in which the invisible strangler recalls his mother and her lack of love for him are sufficiently overdone and sophomoric that they are entertaining, as is the wonderfully stupid and tacky dance performance shown while he kills one of his victims, but these brief amusing moments are hardly sufficient to make the film worth seeing. The Astral Factor is so dull and monotonous there is little more I can say about it, except that it is best avoided.
