Monsterism #36

Film: THX-1138
Subject: The Chrome Robots

Another case of the simplest things being the most effective. These eerie, emotionless robots spoke with an unnervingly calm voice and were probably twice as frightening to me than the original Terminator. The first time I saw it I was way too young to understand it, but these dudes made a huge impression on me - it was only when I managed to track the film down years later that I was able to appreciate the film for more than just its intimidating robots. The film itself isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I love it (being the George Lucas freak I am).
