Synopsis
Sad-sack teen Billy Duncan (Kim Milford) desperately needs supernatural powers to get a leg up in life. His mother doesn't care for him. So-called friends tease him. A Neanderthal police officer continually rides him. In fact, only his sweetheart, Kathy, treats him with any kind of affection at all. Then Billy finds a laser-rigged cannon and a mysterious brooch -- apparently the possessions of aliens. Although his skin turns green after Billy acquires these items, he feels much less wimpy and decides it's high time for a little payback. Featured on an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, LASERBLAST is goofy fun that features nifty, turtle-like aliens that were created and animated by stop-motion great David Allen.
