Robot Monster

Please choose a format above.

There should not be so much to laugh about in a movie where seven billion people die.

But you gotta admit, when the extinction of humanity is perpetrated by a guy in a rented gorilla suit who owns a bubble machine: that’s pretty darn funny. That furry rascal got us good!

The gorilla is Ro-Man, and he’s managed to pull off a pretty impressive feat: killing all but eight people on Earth. Most of us would probably kick back and call it a day at this point, but like a determined Twitch streamer, Ro-Man’s determined to 100% this genocide before returning to his home planet. 

Unfortunately, he didn’t plan on one thing: two of the remaining people still being shockingly horny despite all the death, suffering, and mutant lizards that occasionally roll around biting each other. Alice agrees to marry Roy, despite him possessing what can generously be described as only 60% of a shirt. This enrages either the Robot or the Monster part of Ro-Man, and it’s probably the Monster part since not a single aspect of him in any way resembles a robot.

The fate of the entire human race hangs in the balance, unless of course there’s an embarrassingly preposterous twist that will wrap things up just when things look bleakest. Don’t be a Pooped-Out Pinwheel, join Mike, Kevin, Bill, Jason, and McCloud for Robot Monster!
