Above: Turkish packaging for Future-Kill.
As an experiment in film criticism, I've decided to review the awesome 1985 Party/Sci-Fi/Metal/Horror classic Future-Kill in "real-time" tonight, giving you guys the play-by-play as the plot unfolds. I haven't seen this flick since time out of mind, so it's all pretty much fresh for me. I will hit 'Publish' as the credits roll. I promise.
For those of you who haven't seen this amazing film, a warning: Review may contain spoilers.
