Coming Attractions: LASERBLAST (1978)
I actually went to see Laserblast in the theater when I was sixteen, probably after seeing the TV spot below. At the time, I kinda enjoyed it, more for what the movie could have been than for what it was. The story is actually pretty cool - an "alienated," angry teenager stumbles across a powerful weapon that slowly transforms him into a literal alien as he uses it - but the execution is just terrible. The acting is horrible and the direction by Michael Rae is worse. No wonder it was his only film.
