This is the movie that made youngdumpster fall in love with the apocalypse. The scenes where they put roaches on a carpet and drag it still skeezes me out.

Almost gave it a -1 for the watermark, but turns out they really do release these movies and it isn't another watermark based borrowed content Jacobite franchise, like Brian Harrod.

Same here, I don't know if this was my first post-apoc movie, but it's definitely one of the early ones I saw on TV.

Was this the one with the super roaches that could not be stomped on or something?

Yes! I wonder if that's why Mad Max Fury Road was so critically acclaimed even though it had almost no dialogue or story. It was like the Crouching Tiger to all the cheap Kung Fu movies Ang Lee was taking from. Assuming we're still around 20 years from now Fury Road will be remembered by me anyway as the movie with the flaming double guitar dude and this one as the cockroach movie.

the new mad max had too much dialogue and too much love story. also i don't know why the mra pussies went nuts.

Finally, the A-Team, Airwolf, Terminator, Watchman, Fallout crossover I've always asked for!


Also, holy shit baby Rorschach!
Lurchi
you forgot The Garden of the Finzi-Continis

Needs Hawkwind soundtrack.

Beat me to it.

Same year, they probably left the theater and wrote the song that night.

Old_Zircon
Actually, they probably knew the original story by heart. Not being a big sci fi reader, I didn't even know this was based on a story.

Lurchi
they also have a song called Lord of Light

Caminante Nocturno
All of those preppers in their dinky little shelters are going to feel really dumb when they see me and my crew driving past them in one of these babies.

Someone recommended this to me and after I watched it I wanted to punch their stupid eyeballs because it was mega shit with terrible sfx.
memedumpster
Why the hell aren't you watching Lady Terminator!? Movies don't exist except for that one.

Old_Zircon
That's not entirely true, there is also Robo Vampire.

Robin Kestrel
The actual short story by Zelazny is pretty badass.

It's still pretty fast-paced reading, though hardly "hard" SF...even by 1969, it was common knowledge that the massive doses of radiation released by an atomic war would not cause spiders and bats to grow 500 times their normal size.

You mean I've been keeping radium in my shorts for nothing all this time?

Discordia
My babysitter dropped me and a friend off at the movie theater for Damnation Alley and Soylant Green. To this day every time I see a cock roach I jump.

I remember catching this on Monstervision a long time ago. Gotta love George Peppard!
CuteLucca
The first 10 minutes are great.
TeenerTot
Well, as long as it's just that alley. I'll take the next street over.
Old_Zircon
It's duck pin so it doesn't really matter anyhow.

What the hell is she so scared of that is running away on the floor? It looks like a carpet full of cockroaches.
