June: Robot Rampage!

The Three Laws of Robotics:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

…yeah, right.

June features three movies about robots running amok and killing their human masters.

6/5: Robocop 2 (1990) — Peter Weller IS: Robocop. This sequel pits Robocop against a new designer drug called “Nuke.” But there’s more: the evil corporate empire that created Robocop intends to develop a larger and more powerful version to replace the original.

6/12: NO POTLUCK. Come join us at the Another Hole in the Head film festival for some very special films.

6/19: Runaway (1984) — Michael Crichton’s sci-fi thriller about machines gone bad. Sgt. Jack Ramsey (Tom Selleck) is the police robotics expert on the case when evil genius Dr. Charles Luthor (Kiss front man Gene Simmons) unleashes his reprogrammed androids.

6/26 Death Machine (1994) — Brad Dourif stars as the creator of the ultimate killing machine, an android that tracks victims by sensing fear. Guess what—shit gets out of control real fast.
