    Why exactly does he turn into a monster? I kinda wanna know more about the actual plot…if there is more to it than just boom.

    • October 30, 2013 at 11:28 am

      I’m guessing that the pendant sends some sort of energy through his body to activate the gun. And that energy was designed to go through alien bodies. The energy probably has strange side effects on the human body. But I haven’t seen it (yet), so I could be way off.

        you basically explained it more than the movie did

  • NeroTheShade

    October 16, 2010 at 3:09 am

    I can see what they TRIED to do(and failed at): show how power corrupts, and even turns innocent simpletons into monsters. But in the end this was nothing but blowing things up, as if they finished another movie and had several crates of dynamite left over.

    Yeah look out Star Wars! Laser Blast’s got one guy gone crazy / possessed by a laser gun, who blows up cars for over an hour! They should make another two movies based off of this, and then three prequels that’re inferior. If that happened, I think the universe would explode.

  • angelspawn77

    October 16, 2010 at 4:01 am

    So did the aliens ever get the laser back? and what happened to the guy? I it seems the guy was turning into one of them because he had sharp teeth and started looking like a monster, District 9ish maybe? lol.

    Thank you So much James for another Great Webpisode of Monster Madness

    This one is really weird, makes no sense, What happens at the end??
    that is driving me crazy, I wanna know what happens to the guy and did the aliens come back,

    Have you ever thought about doing KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE?
    That is my favorite movie of all time, It is hilarious and cheesy but So much fun, I would love if you did that one

    I know what you’re thinking:

    Did he shoot six gortoks, or only five?

    I love the turtle aliens in this film. I think it’s the voice that Crow did for ’em that always endeared me to them, haha.

  • BatDan

    October 16, 2010 at 7:24 am

    Come on James, can’t we just get “Beyond Thunderdome”?
    I had to use it…

  • horrorfanboy

    October 16, 2010 at 7:32 am

    Yes! Another very obscure horror film. A lot of lazer movies this year. This movie doesn’t look bad. Aside from the filler scenes, it looks watchable. Every guy wants a lazer gun so they can blow things up.

  • Butch Bitch

    October 16, 2010 at 9:49 am

    Damn! what’s next “The Terror Of Tiny Town”? “Golden Bat”? “Japanese Spider-Man”? “Jonny Sokko & his Flying Robot”???!!???
    I love all the choices you’ve made so far & it’s been a real pleasure to see this every morning.
    I’ve always wondered tho, what does the Angry Nerd think of that Animal House/Porky’s rip-off of video games: “Joysticks” ?–let us know-thanx!

  • MATTX1

    October 16, 2010 at 9:54 am

    I recognized the passenger in that red car, thats Eddie Deezen also played the restraunt manager in Critters 2 (1988). Just thought Id mention, since no one else has.

  • ASC1980

    October 16, 2010 at 10:36 am

    I forgot Eddie Deezen was in this. He’s one of the guys drive around in that car at the end.

    I caught the very end of this many years back on USA up all night but hadn’t seen the whole film till a few years back when I acquired the vhs. I’m glad Charles Band films got better as time went on.

  • October 16, 2010 at 10:39 am

    You forgot to mention that the makeup for the kidโ€™s face whenever heโ€™s using the laser gun looked like Lou Ferrigno in The Incredible Hulk TV series. I swear whenever I watch this movie, I wanted the guy to say โ€œHulk destroy!โ€ or โ€œHulk like lasers!โ€ But anyway, itโ€™s actually enjoyable to watch in spite of the filler.

    October 16, 2010 at 10:48 am

    This is a great MST episode, last one with Trace before Bill became Crow,and I like Bill better. He forgot to say the guy who says I can wait for everyone to see u driving around in this, is the same guy who does Mandark’s voice on Dexter’s Lab. and when Mike Nelson always makes the fat cop guy say ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAALLL.

  • IWolfofMibuI

    October 16, 2010 at 11:53 am

    It’s def one of my favorite MST3Ks. Interesting side note, the actor who played Carlo in the Godfather plays the vague “anti-alien-agent” type in this movie. They never explain who he is or what he’s doing there…you just kind of have to infer…

  • Matt 2.0

    October 16, 2010 at 1:31 pm

  • October 16, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Is that Sayid Yarrah??? I mean, at the very beginning of the vid, i think sayid’s head blows, haha

  • October 16, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    I saw Eddie Deezen in one of those clips. Of course he was in the movie Midnight Madness, which was a remake of the movie It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

  • daggereye

    October 16, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    this thing has a following? gahh… I mean I get infra-man that thing is awesome but this? do the aliens kill him at the end? is he bad guy by the end of the movie and the aliens are the good guys? wtfbbq?

    I remember seeing part of this movie when I was little.

  • October 16, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    What I find even more ironic is that the drawing of the dude in the poster looks a lot like Mark Hamill, and then they blow up a Star Wars sign? I have a feeling a lot of Star Wars fans piled into the theaters because of the deceptive artwork, only to be flipped the proverbial bird at the end.

  • varehouse

    October 16, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    I can definately see you reviewing Carnosaur from 1993! It’s the campiest good Dinosaur movie in recent years!

  • October 16, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    where the fuck do you find these movies? you must have like the biggest and rarest collection of crap movies ever

  • October 16, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    but actually that movie looks awesome, wish i had a laser gun there are a few people i’d like to see explode

  • Necramonium

    October 16, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    You could really see how much Star Wars influenced the science fiction genre after it came out in 1977, a shit-load of movies with lasers in it followed, even the 1978 cheesy KISS movie ‘KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park’ had Paul Stanley shooting lasers out of his eye!

  • Schloss Ritter

    October 16, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Is that very first shot from Critters?

    Why does finding the laser gun turn the guy into a homicidal maniac? Guess it has something to do with the pendant.

  • October 16, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    Maybe the laser gun was have some spesial powered beam that could blast more than one time the objects! Heres one movie that insipred many shooting run and gun games from the 80s.The guy doesnt have his god as we greeks say.

  • October 16, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    I bet that this will be one of lichael bay’s favorite films,since he loves to create explotions him self! What about the aliens? they chase him to take back the gun? talking about a screw up scenario!

    If you’re gonna watch it, find the MST3K version. It’s the 20th anniversary edition and the only way to enjoy yourself.

  • methoddan

  • parcel god

    October 17, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    Oh, no. Not Laserblast. Even the MST3K treatment couldn’t save this one. Absolutely mind numbing. There is NOTHING in this movie that makes it even remotely interesting or watchable. STAY AWAY.

  • Legodude

    October 17, 2010 at 4:45 pm

  • October 18, 2010 at 12:48 am

    The jerk-offs who made this shitty film probably thought, after seeing “Star Wars”, “Huh huh, wouldn’t it be COOL if we made a movie with some dude and a laser gun, and we shoot a ‘Star Wars’ sign, and blow shit up, duh huh huh?” Retards.

    That other movie you talked about–‘Infra-Man’–now THAT seems like an explosion-obsessed movie worth watching!

  • October 24, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    Haha, the shooting of the Star Wars sign is kind of ironic since the drawing of the main character for the movie cover looks just like a younger Mark Hamill. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • PSYOP Mike

    October 25, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    To be perfectly honest with you, if I found a laser gun that to hybrid snail-turd-men left behind, I’d probably go around blowing shit up also. Its safe to say that I’ll never own this movie, Jame’s review was plenty for me. I just want to know if the dude riding shotgun in the 56 Chevy gets killed. He had a bit in Grease as “Eugene the Nerd” and was the manager of the fast food restaraunt in Critters 2. My favorite role that he has played would be the voice of “Pop” on the Rice Krispies commercials from the late 80’s/early 90’s.

  • October 26, 2010 at 11:31 am

    I watched this movie a few nights ago,gah it’s like so slow
    it’s not like tail sting like where every minute is hilariously cheesy
    it’s just really mundane
    @PSYOP mike yeah the nerdy guy gets blown up by laser in the car with the sheriff

  • Bloodletskeleton

    October 26, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    Fuck yeah! I have this movie, and the first time I saw it I thought the guy was going to massively cream himself at the end when he goes berserk on destroying everything. Lol, good way to say fuck you Star Wars.

  • Bloodletskeleton

    October 26, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    I think the people using the laser-blaster turns people into green mutants either because of the radiation coming off of it mutates them, or isn’t meant to be used by humans and is a side effect that doesn’t occur when being used by those stop motion aliens.

    This movie seems like some famous directors favorite movie all time. For example Martin Scorsese’s one of his favorite film is The Red Shoes 1948. I think this movie is Michael Bay’s favorite because it has got lots of explosions and wierd slow mo times without purpose. And also including bad acting and nonsense plot. But I love these kind of trash movies too.

    Seems as though there is no real plot but the budget for explosions is obscene.

    Before I even start to comment, the guy on the cover totally looks like my boss (who is a lady) when I was delivering pizzas…

    This could’ve been a lot better. You know, if they put more energy into him changing and how he’d be torn between wanting to stay human and the thirst for the gun’s power.
