“An unabashed Terminator rip-off…that just clicks as entertainment.” – Paul Corupe, Canuxsploitation
“Silly in every way imaginable.” – Comeuppance Reviews
The Laser Blast Film Society invites you to traverse time and space with the 38th Governor of Minnesota (Jesse Ventura) as he pursues Arnold Schwarzenegger’s best bud (Sven-Ole Thorsen) across two galaxies to a sleepy wintery hamlet on Earth in order to prevent him from solving the “Anti-Life Equation”. Despite rifing largely on the structure of The Terminator, writer/director Damian Lee conjures an imaginative mythology anchored by a wonderful sc-fi vernacular that teeters between camp and cool as it coins badass names like Secundus, Tyrannus 7, and THE CULMATOR. That it also features a virgin birth, a child-god and intergalactic “wise-men” that travel afar during the holiday season, also make it a Canadian Christmas classic in our books! Such eccentricity is further seasoned with a healthy helping of sparkling pyrotechnics and burly stuntwork, not to mention a cameo of the Belush himself as a disgruntled school principal! And all of this entertaining madness will be beamed straight to your eyeballs from a rare 35mm print!
