Monsterism #37

Movie: The Terminator
Subject: The Terminator

The Terminator is one of those movies that blurs the lines between science fiction, horror and action. It has a really nice blend of each genre, and though it hasn't necessarily aged well in terms of its visuals, it's one of those movies you can never really get tired of. If you ask me, the special effects are more impressive in this film than they are in the newer ones. The shot of the Terminator above is one of those sequences that really stuck with me - the relentless killing machine limping through the back corridors of a factory. The shot in motion is fantastic and genuinely chilling.
