In a not too distant future, which eerily looks very similar to the late 1980's, cyborg drones will be needed to fill a gap in the workforce for some reason or another. Inteltrax is a company that's filling that void. A mysterious person in the company that goes by the name of Z has decided that money and glory are much more important than creating more worker bees, so he's taken it upon himself to drug the cyborgs in order to make them perfect killing machines that get their jollys by killing the innocent people of our fair land. When Z goes to far and takes one of the scientists responsible for creating the cyborgs as a hostage, the scientist's sister escapes so that she can get the only man on earth that can save the day - and that man is Matt Riker (Rick Gianasi). All of this plays against a subplot of the ambitious and mysterious Domina, who only wants to see Z go down in flames by the hands of her own uber cyborg.
Happy Halloween everybody. I decided I'd dust off the old review typing fingers and bring you a new feature that I like to call "From the Depths of Netflix". While most of the movies that we've reviewed over the years have been hard if not impossible to come by for most people, occasionally I'll find a hidden b-movie gem on Netflix. I'm going to use this feature to bring these titles to you. This way, anyone with a Netflix account can join in on the horribleness of watching along. The first title in this series is "The Terror Within".
In an apocalyptic world resources are scarce, and life is a struggle day to day for the Mojave center for disease control. It seems that this particular apocalypse (not to be confused with all the others that happen in most of these movies) has caused some people to mutate into what are known as gargoyles - huge rubber suited alien looking beasts. Thankfully, these gargoyles have all been contained in caves and underground. One day on patrol, a couple members of the Mojave crew find meet their untimely demise while scouting for food at the hands of a new breed of gargoyle... the kind that come walk among us.
One day you're sitting in a tree smoking a cigarette, thinking about how you're gonna jump the broken down old bridge at Elkin's Grove. The next day you're fighting off some huge unrelenting pink pile of ooze that just spread into town. "How did you get here" you might ask yourself. If you're Brian Flagg (Kevin Dillon), you'd probably be asking yourself the exact same thing. Life was so easy just being a juvenile delinquent. Now you're just trying to survive The Blob.
The future is a pretty dreary place. Wars, famine, plagues, etc. Kinda makes you not want to see it. Thankfully, today's story takes place 1,000 years after tomorrow, so unless there's some kind of cure for everything released pretty soon or cryogenics steps up its' game, we won't have much to worry about. See, in this future a neutron war takes place. No, neutrons don't fight each other, I'm guessing it's some kind of war that has to do with neutron bombs. After the war, the world consists of vast deserts and large city-states. If you're not in a city state, then you don't use machinery (except weird floodlight/gun things) and you're probably a mutant. Unless, of course, you're a guide - which is an ancient warrior that lives only by it's own code. If you are a guide, though, you're hunted down to participate in the only punishment that's still allowed in this distant future. That punishment is Deathsport!
