Crash and Burn (1990)

Is it possible to steal so much from so many different sources that what you’re doing suddenly becomes…creative?

Perhaps that’s what happened here.  I suppose that when all the bits and pieces just don’t fit, it takes a lot of help to force them together.

It starts like a classic old dark house horror film, with a group of strangers trapped in the decaying mansion by a terrible storm.  Only it’s set in a decaying future, so it’s a pirate radio station in  the desert, and the storm is a deadly solar storm.

There’s a murder, suspicion and paranoia and a scene ripped off from John Carpenter.  We learn the murderer is a terminator type robot, who has to fight the giant construction robot that’s been sitting outside through the whole movie.

Well, of course he has to.  After all, that’s what it’s been sitting out there waiting for.

So in the end, what should be yet another routine Full Moon production turns out to be more entertaining than it has any right to be.

Hey, I don’t have a problem with that.
