No comments? Poor LASERBLAST.
I’d say more, but I haven’t seen it. I do remember reading about it in Starlog, though. Something about stop-motion aliens.
I thought I’d let my eclectic audience pick up the bal, but alas, I musta been the only one here who saw LASERBLAST opening weekend. A fun old-skool sci-fi flick with fantastic David Allen/Jim Danforth stop-motion (and boy do the aliens look like ET!)
There is one undisputedly great scene in LASERBLAST — when the alien villain blasts apart a STAR WARS billboard. The audience laughed and cheered.
I saw “Laserblast”(& “Corvette Summer” for that matter), but honestly I can’t remember any of “Laserblast” except that thing on his arm and, I think, the alien hardware possessing his mind or something. Anyway, nice piece of ’70’s B-movie poster memorabilia there.
Also, just noticed Eddie Deezen’s name on the poster. Awesome. I may have to go & rent this one.
This is it! This is what it was called! I remember this horrible movie in one of those summers in Sacramento, eating rasinettes walking out thinking, for the first time in my life, that I watched an awful move. Since then, I have wanted to see it again because it was one of those iconic awful movies of your childhood.
