“The plot of PREDATOR with a cyborg instead of an alien. This has everything you need.”
— Joachim Andersson, LETTERBOXD

Before collaborating on the TERMINATOR rip-off known as SHOCKING DARK, director Bruno Mattei (CRUEL JAWS) and co-writers Claudio Fragasso and Rossella Drudi (TROLL 2) teamed up on ROBOWAR—a brain-melting mash-up of PREDATOR, ROBOCOP, and Filipino war movie mayhem! When a team of jacked commandos called B.A.M. (“Bag Ass Motherfuckers!”) are hired for a jungle rescue mission, they find themselves hunted by a kill-crazed creature that is part man, part machine, and all glorious 1980s ItaloSleaze. Reb Brown (CAPTAIN AMERICA), Catherine Hickland (ONE LIFE TO LIVE), and Massimo Vanni (RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR) star in this synthed-out, ultra-violent miracle, now scanned in 4k from the original negative.
