    Robot dong, huh? “I’d buy that for a dollar!” 😉
    I never fully realize just how much of this movie sticks with me until I read something like this, or re-watch it for the next thousandth time! All the in your face gore-soaked moments obviously…(who hasn’t sat in a work meeting wishing for an ED 209 to glitch & take someone out so we can adjourn early)…but damn…its everything!
    Kurtwood Smith, no matter what he’s in, no matter how many episodes of That 70’s Show…the sound of his voice takes me right back to Boddicker…he was incredible! The perfect combination of smart, ruthless, and without mercy! Pure unadulterated evil…brilliant and brutal! When the Joker tells Gotham they deserve a better class of criminal…this is the guy he’s referring too.
    Don’t even get me started on Rob Bottin in the SFX arena…I’m a Horror chick, and I’ll keep you here all day! As perfectly stated by the random criminal in the lobby of the Metro West Precinct in Old Detroit, when it comes to re-watching this movie…”I am a repeat offender! I repeat! I will offend again!” Great read, thanks!

    Cheers Emily! The sci-fi and horror movies of the 80’s need their own hall in the Smithsonian. The effects and extreme gore that directors were able to slip in created monsters like Eli Roth and Adam Wingard and we’re all better off for it. I banged out a post on the legend Stan Winston some time ago. Let me know what you think!
