Neo, a drifter from the atomic-blasted wastelands, arrives with his klutzy robot sidekick at a factory where slaves labor to fuel the sinister Dark One's Power Station. There, he meets a comely woman who convinces him to help rescue her scientist father, who has invented a device that can break the Dark One's control over the slaves. Gathering a motley crew of allies on the way, Neo and pals travel to the Power Station, where they confront the Dark One's evil servants. Written by Steven Otte <flagator@gate.net>

[first lines]
Narrator: The last city still stood. The remaining home of what was left of the civilization of New Terra. The society had been all but destroyed by the Robot Rebellion of '33, when the robots had turned on their masters, by the billions. The ensuing chaos had led to a radiation spill far more deadly than any nuclear warfare. The world had been brought to its knees by the... robot holocaust.

Alternate Versions

Differences between US and Italian versions: There was no narration in the Italian version except for the beginning. In the US version, there is narration throughout the whole movie. A topless man and woman appear outside the Pleasure Machine, holding up the inevitable static electricity globe in one scene. (For some reason, the makers of these things persist in believing that they look 'futuristic.') Meanwhile, a bare-breasted Valaria sticks her arms out between the bars and caresses it. This scene was cut from most US prints. See more »

User Reviews

From the cast of "Thriller" rejects
4 March 2012 | by PFreddie88See all my reviews

This movie is bad, it goes without saying. But, I have seen comedies that weren't this funny. Really? Sewer socks? A female villain that is a cross between Barbarella and Freddie Mercury? The only reason that it wasn't longer is that Kai had to be back at Chippendales by 6:00. The whole thing looked like it was filmed at William McKinley Jr. High with the art room making construction paper props. The grand total of three robots that comprise the mega population of robotum. Finally, the pasty white legs and tighty whities of the slaves used to feed the dark one. The whole thing looks like a Jazzercise class gone bad. Other than that, it was fantastic.
