Chaank Armaments is experimenting with the ultimate fighting machine which is part human - part machine. So far, the Hardman project has been unreliable and has killed a number of innocent people. The genius behind this project is Jack who lives in a world of models, toys and magazines. When he is fired by Cale for killing a few corporate officers, he unleashes the ultimate killing machine called the 'Warbeast' against Cale and those who would help her. Written by

The scene in the elevator when the Warbeast raises his head and clicks his jaw before attacking Raimi is shown backwards. At the end, one of the jaw pistons falls off the head of the Warbeast, but since the scene is backwards, it starts with the piston attaching itself to the head. See more »
I really didn't know what I was thinking when I picked up this undercover gem from ye olde rental shoppe, but I sure as hell didn't regret picking it up! Death Machine; even though the name sounds trashy, the movie itself is not.
It's about a company, named Chaank Armaments, which does all sorts of experiments, including testing 'techniques' on babies. Hayden Cale (Ely Pouget), the woman in charge of covering up for the companies tracks, is being left in the dark about the real things happening in Chaank Armaments, namely the afore mentioned experiments. Not only that, she's being targeted by the prodigy child of the company, who invents all of the flashy equipment they produce, only not really targeted for death, more targeted for 'mating' since she has a dark past of her own. Jack Dante (Brad Dourif), the prodigal child, then proceeds to take whatever steps necessary to get his 'prize'. And all of this, happens on the night some eco-terrorists (well, some low cookoff of them anyhow) decide to expose Chaank for what it really is. Add a mechanical monster, some comical scenes, and voila, you have Death Machine, a brilliant little.. well. SciFi Splatter movie. I have to admit, I only rented the movie because it starred Brad Dourif, which I think is a brilliant actor. He played in various movies (Alien : Resurrection, The Prophecy III), series (Star Trek : Voyager) and even a game (Myst III : Exile), all in which he put down a fantastic performance, even when the movie or series wasn't upto much good. (Voyager, Alien 4 and The Prophecy 3 for example) If I had ten thumbs, I'd put them all up!
