The Bar's Closed!

I remember watching this flick when I was around the age of 12 and I thought it was wicked. Then to my surprise it was on again only recently and I still think it's a good film. Clint Walker is cool in this and I also thought he was good in the original 'Dirty Dozen'. In fact, they are all quite well known actors who star in this movie about a bulldozer that gets infected with hostile alien life and goes on a murderous rampage.

It's a watchable film, but also understandable that some people just won't like it. Like my sister for example, who watched it and then a few days later commented to one of her friends that she had watched this terrible film called 'Tractor Killer'. Rather amusing.

Rating 7/10.
