Light Blast

Please choose a format above.

Scoreboards: usually all they do is let you know who is currently humiliating the Mets. But terrorists have harnessed the latent evilness of the humble scoreboard and are now using them to LIGHT BLAST people!!!

Light Blasting, as we all know since it’s a totally real thing, involves melting someone’s face using budget special FX. Think the Nazis from Raiders of the Lost Ark if they were all played by claymation icon Mr. Bill.  It’s cool though, because the filmmakers clearly used all of the FX budget on the bonkers stunts in this movie. They’re honestly as impressive as anything we’ve done in a RiffTrax movie, even if most of the money probably went to a legal fund for stuntmen widows.

Starring Erik Estrada and directed by the guy who gave us Warriors of the Wasteland and 1990: The Bronx WarriorsLight Blast is an 80s fever dream of explosions, car chases, and of course, Light Blasting. Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill and whatever you do: watch out for scoreboards!
