Hey creeps! Apparently all of The Retroist was infected by some sort of Robocop induced hysteria this week. After much investigation I apparently was wrong about the cause of the outbreak being linked to expired frozen yogurt ingested in front of a shrine dedicated to Peter Weller (there were toenail clippings and a Buckaroo Banzai comic involved), and instead it was the more mundane occurrence of revisiting a classic that is getting the remake “treatment” (which is hitting theaters whose clientele doesn’t include zombies, punks and the criminally insane). Oh, and that shrine? Let’s just say that The Projectionist chooses to spend his nights in a manner not fit for polite society.
So, far be it from me to keep the joys of Robocop from being passed on to you ghouls here at The Vault. What’s that? You think we are actually going to screen a stone cold classic like Robocop tonight! Hahaha…you fiends are adorable! But, our film does feature a robot that is also a cop…it also features the world’s buffest Rogue impersonator, robot lassoing, Beach Boys references…and Shoeboogie.
So sit back, choke down a garbage can sized cup of soda and let 1988’s R.O.T.O.R. take you on a magical journey!
There’s 8 more parts that follow that video above…I wager you won’t be clicking those.
