Laserblast (1978)

How bad is it? It's become a staple of bad movie festivals.
Should you see it? I suppose so.

Reptilian aliens land on Earth in the desert and start fighting; no explanation given. A teenager finds a weapon one of them dropped and it turns him into a hideous killer, destroying everything in his path. The plot, simple as it is, has holes. The best scene has the teen blowing up a billboard advertising "Star Wars." The cast is interesting: Rainbeaux Smith, Eddie Deezen, Keenan Wynn and Roddy McDowell all have roles. The special effects are pretty bad, especially for a Hollywood film. It's watchably fun in a loopy way.
