Plot summary[edit]

Neo, a drifter from the atomic-blasted wastelands, and his klutzy robot sidekick arrive at a factory where slaves labor to fuel the Dark One's Power Station. He meets a woman who convinces him to help rescue her father, a scientist who invented a device that can break the Dark One's control over the factory slaves. Gathering a motley crew of allies on the way, Neo goes to the Power Station to confront the Dark One's evil servants.

Release and Legacy[edit]

The film was released theatrically in April 1986 in Italy. In the U.S., it was released directly to videocassette in January of the following year by Wizard Video. In 2001, MGM released an Amazon.com Exclusive VHS of the film. Despite being tied to Full Moon Features, the film has yet to see a DVD release. However, MGM released a widescreen version of the film on Hulu.com, fueling speculation that a DVD release is possible in the near future. On December 4, 2012, the MST3K version of the film was released on DVD by Shout Factory.

The film was shown during the first season of Mystery Science Theater 3000, after fans (along with Joel and the bots) complained of never viewing any color films.
