- Alison Parks - The heroine of our story, can do some pretty impressive things because her father was a Marine.
- Ferdy Meisel - The geek who tags along with the whole gang. He is setup with Alison to keep him quiet about the party.
- Greg - Fairly level-headed guy until he sees his girlfriend get a crispy death. Then he looses it, in more than one way.
- Suzie - Greg's girlfriend, she flips out for no apparent reason and convinces all the girls to leave the safe air duct. Always a good idea when killer robots are around.
- Michael - He's the one with the beer. Chews his gum very annoyingly. I was glad to see him go.
- Leslie - Michael's girlfriend. Gets chased around by the robots and then her head explodes.
- Linda - Married to Rick, accidentally runs into a laser beam and dies.
- Rick - The tough "Rambo" type. After seeing Linda killed he drives a golf cart into a robot.
- Protector's - A lightning bolt turns these robots into killbots. (I didn't make that up it's off the box) At first I thought it was Johnny 5.
|A group of four couples plan a party at the local furniture store where three of the guys work. They just happen to plan it on the first night the new security system comes into play. The security system includes 3 protector robots and large steel doors that lock at 12:00a.m. sharp and don't open until sunrise. Having said that nothing can go wrong with this security system, something does. The rooftop computer is struck by lightning and the robots turn into out of control killers attacking everyone in sight with their armament. The teens try to figure out a way to kill these robots, as the robots kill off the teens in many different ways. This movie at first glance was not that impressive, but after a second watch all the subtle bits came out. It's a toss up between 3 and 4 slimes. |
