Saturn 3


I remember seeing this movie in the video store with its super-cool robot on the cover and thinking, "This rated R so it is probably a super graphic and scary sci-fi movie like Alien." Alien kinda traumatized me as a kid so I was never in a rush to rent this one. Now, thirty years later I have finally mustered the nerve to watch it. Dear gawd, it's low budget crap. The R rating is mostly from the inclusion a seventy-year-old Kirk Douglass's naked bum. This feels like a 50s Corman sci-fi movie with a disco veneer and that super-cool robot is a bit less intimidating when you see it Frankenstein-lumbering around hallways that a decorated mostly with neon-colored HVAC ventilation tubes.
