The Freaks and the Frats come together during their moment of terror in Future Kill, a sci-fi film that doesn't have much to do with its H.R. Giger poster/DVD cover. Directed by Ronald Moore, the film's The Warriors -like plot, in which a gang navigates the city maze for survival, features a group of Texan fraternity boys who accidentally witness the murder of an anti-nuke group leader, Eddie Pain, when they try to kidnap him as a prank. Pain's killer, Splatter (Edwin Neal of Texas Chainsaw Massacre), seeks to eradicate his witnesses, so that the Frat boys must find shelter among their enemies, the Freaks, those previously convinced by Pain to dress like radiation victims. The Freaks' costumes resemble Derek Jarman's punks from Jubilee, making Future Kill fashionable if anything. Between the average Freak, Splatter's half-metal, half-human look reminiscent of Phantom of the Paradise, and the New Wave synthesizer soundtrack, it's hard to take seriously the Frats' war casualties as Splatter kills some of them. Not until the Frats team up with Splatter's ex, Dorothy Grim (Marilyn Burns), do they distinguish the nuances between Freaks, along with the need to eliminate Splatter from the Freaks' non-violent scene. The final, harrowing battle between Splatter and his opponents looks like Tron. Overall, Future Kill's horror takes place in back alleys populated with fire-breathers, punk rock bums, and mini-skirted hookers, providing a satisfying glimpse into an imagined '80s subculture. --Trinie Dalton

Product Description

Texas University frat boys are held responsible for the accidental killing of the Anti-Nuke Mutants' leader and must flee through the hostile parts of downtown Dallas, aided by friendly Mutant Julie (Alice Villarreal). They're mercilessly hunted by the psychopathic Splatter (Ed Neal), the Mohawk sporting mutant seeking revenge for the killing of his leader.

A bizarre twist on THE ROAD WARRIOR, Future-Kill is perhaps best remembered for its recasting of TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE stars Edwin Neil and Marilyn Burns and its amazing key art by Alien creator H.R. Giger.

Watch also for a cameo in the film from Texas Chainsaw Massacre II's Leatherface, Bill Johnson.

Need to set the record straight here. This DVD is pretty sweet, and the movie rocks really. Lots of attitude here from the mid 80's street punk scene and some over the top psycho tendencies in the action, it's one of only a few movies that give you that scene. "Class of 1984" is another sweet movie in this vein. Also, the original "Toxic Avenger".

4.0 out of 5 stars "Enter the grunge knight" May 25, 2008
Format:DVD
Except the 2 actors from texas chainsaw massacre, this movie stars people that look like your next door neighbors (from the 80's). Some preppy-new waver-Frats are initiating all night in the worst part of town when they piss off an armored clad killer/psycho (with throwing stars and claws) in charge of a gang of anti-nuke-grunge-new wavers. Fights between the two groups can only be described as the flock of seagulls vs. Nirvana! Although I've never met a fan of this movie, I liked it a lot because once the action starts it doesn't stop. there are also some decent punk rock tunes and impressive gore scenes. The bad acting, 80's attire, and goofy dialog only add to the fun. Special features- A very decent theatrical trailer, and interview with actor who played Splatter. 16x9 dvd picture is dark but good, audio is fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Future-Krap March 14, 2013
Format:DVD
Whew, what a stinker!!! I saw this movie in the theater with my cousin in the '80s. Part way through, he says, "Hey, those guys are in my frat!" This movie is a total home job, but with a plot that plays out like a '70s sitcom. Like another reviewer said, it's not even accidentally entertaining. Save yourself the money and spend it on a burger and fries.

1.0 out of 5 stars utterly pathetic July 26, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
possibly one of the worst dark future/dystopian films i've ever seen. this was a really bad, low budget Revenge of the Nerds knock off mixed with something that i can only guess tried to resemble Escape From New York.

Future-Kill is like a Troma movie except without the planned campy laughs, unintentional humor, nudity, innovation, and bad movie charm.

the best thing about this movie is the cover and the small poster of the cover image that's included.

believe me, i love dark, no budget diamonds in the rough. this isn't one of them, this is just a turd.
