May 25th, 2013: Laserblast (1978)

Laserblast

Cast and Crew:   Charles Band (Producer); Richard Band (Score); Ron Masak, Eddie Deezen, Keenan Wynn, Roddy McDowall

What It’s About:  Disgruntled teen Billy Duncan (Kim Milford) finds a dead alien’s unwieldy laserblaster and goes on a rampage.

Why Watch It Today?:  Star Wars was released on this date in 1977.  A wave of sci-fi films followed, including today’s stinker, which has the gall to literally take aim at Star Wars by having Billy blow up a Star Wars billboard.
