October 28, 2013 13 Nights of Hallowe'en 2013: Night #10 Death Machine (1994)
This is maybe the most horrific and sci-fi at one time of this year's movies. Hayden is an executive at a company that makes military hardware. She comes under fire by the news media for the company committing war crimes with the supposedly cancelled Hardman project that marries man and machine with disastrous results. When Hayden goes to confront the lead scientist for the company she gets more than she bargained for. Jack Dante isn't only brilliant, he's completely psychotic. He sics his pet project the Warbeast on her. The Warbeast is a robot monster that smells fear and attacks its source. At the same time a small team of eco-terrorist thieves infiltrate the building, but they may be Hayden's only hope.
There are only a few names that I wanted to highlight from Death Machine. The first is Stephen Norrington who directed and wrote Death Machine. He also directed only for Blade (1998) (movie). Ely Pouget plays our starring heroine, Hayden. Ely also starred in Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace (1996) (movie). Then there is horror icon Brad Dourif as Dante. Out of his many horror credits I want to point out Child's Play (1988) (movie) and all of it's sequels. Brad also created some very interesting characters in movies such as Graveyard Shift (1990) (movie), Body Parts (1991) (movie), and the Halloween (2007) (movie) remake, and its sequel Halloween II (2009) (movie). Also, pay attention to the names of characters in this movie. Stephen Norrington stuffed in a number of homages with the names.
