“The retro sci-fi vibe and electronic score makes the film harken back to the not-quite-forgotten days of the drive in.” - 10,000 BULLETS
Every young horror nerd, comic fan and/or all-purpose social outcast has fantasized about turning the tables on their tormentors. Well, now that troubled teen Billy has stumbled across an alien laser cannon capable of maximum destruction, he’s going to show those bullying bastards who’s boss! What starts as a zap-crazed rampage of petty retribution is quickly escalated when the extraterrestrial technology transforms Billy into a slavering alien fiend . . . and the race who created the weapon is hellbent on retrieving it! With special effects by the mighty David Allen and supporting roles by Roddy McDowall, Keenan Wynn, and ubernerd Eddie Deezen (GREASE), LASERBLAST is a massively mutated masterwork of star-studded ‘70s sci-fi supremacy!
