Monster of the Day #427

I saw this movie like two weeks ago and basically remember nothing about it. Robot Holocaust it ain’t.

    Melting man, yeah we got that…Okay, I’m stumped.

  • The Rev.

    Yeah, this movie was so easy to forget that it took me a long process of elimination to determine that this was the 3rd movie I did the head-nod in.  I was certain it was something else, but it must have been this; the plot was so thin I didn’t even notice I’d missed a small portion of it.  I’m probably going to have to look at your old Video Cheese piece, and other reviews, to remind myself of the plot when I get to it in my write-up.

    Gotta say, I had already forgotten it too, and without the Robot Holocaust hint, would probably still be trying to figure out what the heck this could have been, despite being there.

    So when do we get a picture of an Ice Cream Cone?

    If the B-Fest lineup is still being used, I’m guessing “Mutant Hunt.”

     Michael Jackson if he had  lived to 60.

  •  And here I thought that was a picture of me after I try shaving in the morning.  Dang it.  I’ll never get this game right…

  • Looks like that long awaited Terminator/Exorcist cross-over everybody’s been talking about. (That bright spot looks like the collar of a Catholic priest, so it looks like a Catholic T-800 come back from the future to kick Evil’s duff!  Looking at it a little closer, though, it might be the jaw of the robot?)

    I remembered this movie partly because I exerted myself to figure out the plot — I love doing that with seemingly plotless films — and partly because this puppet was actually pretty sweet. I would have been impressed by it in a much better movie. Too bad so much hard work and talent went into an effect for this.

    From what I’ve read online it seems you were lucky that they weren’t showing Necropolis. And to think that Robot Holocaust is actually the crowning jewel in Tim Kincaid’s oeuvre…shudder…

    We just watched the MSTed version two weeks ago, and I think I’d gladly take an edited version with the ‘bots over the gratuitous boobies any day. Some things are just not worth it.

    Well I remember Ed French’s FX work. Wish he had done more work on bigger films, he’s a really talented guy.
