2.0 out of 5 stars A laserblast from the past, 25 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Laserblast [DVD] [1978] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The last time I saw this movie was on a Betamax video rental many years ago and I had an odd longing to watch it again. It's not the worst film I've ever seen but it's way down there and sadly the years have not been kind to it.
I always loved the opening desert scene though as a green faced humanoid alien is hunted down and killed by two reptilian aliens, unfortunately they leave his weapon behind and it is picked up by troubled local teen Billy (Kim Milford). The more he plays around with the gun and its strange power source the more he starts to lose his mind and goes on a rampage around the town against all those he holds grudges against.
Stereotypes abound lazy and incompetent police, randy teens even an officious man in black type (Gianni Rossi).
Most of the effects are pretty poor, understandable due to the tiny budget, a fair part of which would have gone to actors Roddy McDowall and Keenan Wynn despite that the stop-motion reptile creatures are still memorable though and it was worth buying to see them again. It was made the year after Star Wars, a poster for which gets destroyed on his mild "rampage", along with a pinball machine and a few cars.
The movie sits comfortably in imdb's worst 100 movies of all time so be warned, only watch if you are curious and have a warped sense of humour.
