Goofs

When Evolver crushes the guy under the car by lowering the jack, Evolver does so by pushing down the jack handle. This is not correct. The handle twists to release the pressure. See more »

so bad it reaches greatness
20 March 2011 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Mark Rosman's best movie is this highly guilty pleasure from the mid-nineties. True it's a pretty insubstantial horror film with crappy special effects & highly predictable story, but seriously how can you hate a film that features Q creating a murderous robot with the voice of the Shameless William H Macy? And the family that 'wins' it in a contest. This one has a few very quotable lines as well. It's MUCH better than the similarly-themed "Brainscan" at least. But one note: This movie goes better with alcohol
