is what happens when
Tetsuo the Iron Man
bong themselves into oblivion and collaborate on a minimalist avant-garde sci-fi cheapie shot in a toolshed" (Nathan Lee,
). In a post-apocalyptic future, a lone girl (Christine Spencer) tends to a decaying band of robot soldiers fighting in a generations-old war sparked by humans over conflicting ideologies. As the Enemy Leader (Brenda Cooney) beams destructive video signals into her compound, the Girl tries to discern the origins of the war by watching a video diary left by the Scientist, played by Angus Scrimm (
). By filming in "Robo-Monstervision"--a black-and-white, 8-millimeter ode to '60s sci-fi--this ingenious allegory about the War on Terror becomes strangely familiar.
