(Sorry, one of the best, and only, pics I could find online of this film.)


I delved deep into my obscure movie memory banks and came out with this beauty. This 1989 Sci-Fi sleeper stars Rodney Eastman portraying an impoverished adolescent outcast who becomes a deadly, vengeful killer against his tormentors after he finds a super-secret anti-matter gun lying in a stream....


....And, that's about all I can remember. Actually, I think I covered just about the entire movie right there..lol. From what little I remember of this film, it's about as cheesy as cheesy Sci-fi films can get. No real plot other than boy is bullied, boy finds cool gun, boy gets even...that's it. But for some reason I remember really liking this movie the few times I saw it.

So...my question is this to all you all-knowing 80's fantatics out there...Has this movie even been released on DVD at all?? And if so, where can I buy a copy? And yes, I searched myself for info and couldn't find much..I did find a few old VHS copies for sale on Amazon. So I'm more likely gonna order one of those if I can't find it on DVD anywhere.

Looks pretty interesting flick to me.
I think that it was never released here though.

Directed by Michael Miner who co-wrote Robocop,
so why didn´t they bring it here?
"From the man who created Robocop" text on the cover and we all would have rented it [Cool]

The soundtrack seems to include heavy metal tune "Always on the Run" by Obsession.
It´s from the cool Methods Of Madness album which i happen to own [Smile]

Obscure flick so i doubt that a dvd release will ever see the light of day.
I sure hope that we can find a VHS tape someday.

Here´s a better cover art pic:

Yeah, I agree that this one will probably never be released on DVD. And I do remember as cheesy as the movie was, it did have a pretty decent soundtrack. After some exploration and asking around, this movie is still very hard to find. I found out the couple copies I found online are not legit...so my search continues.
