I love the fact that at the end, rather than doing something cheesy like "They all spread the news of the monstrocity that was... Killdozer!", they decided to hide what happened. I would too if suddenly a Bulldozer got possessed and killed people. Who'd believe it? Especially without proof. Even with proof at that!

Killdozer sounds like a possible name for a constructicon, lol.

But is there a Killdozer vs. Life Crane fight in this comic?

LucasChad said...

In case anybody wants to know, the TV movie is actually on YouTube. Just type in 'Killdozer' there and it'll show up.

I may be lost, but this comic was mentioned somewhere else on this site right?

You name a bunch of horror killers and don't even give the Kill-Dozer "Daisy Etta" its peer Christine!

I bet someone could take that Electron cloud and change it to nanites or even nanoprobes for some interesting crossover possibilities.

What was that past civilization any way? Was it Pre-Atlantean?

I remember reading the original story the comic is based off of back in high school, around the time when I was snatching up as many science fiction collections as I could get my hands on. While the story did initially make me tilt my head, it's actually a really entertaining read, and well worthy of the pulp era it was published in. Glad to see there's actually a comic that lives up to the story!

I am somewhat disappointed by te lack of Lifecrane herein. Though we do get a pretty awesome backstory this time.

Movie-Brat said...

So, this is the most infamous Killdozer comic. Okay. I can see why Moarte didn't have much to say at the beginning.

Quite frankly, I'm surprised the Sci-Fi Channel didn't adapt this into a tv movie.

never even knew there was a movie OR novel

obscure indeed

Okay the backstory is already stupid. Why not just say 'demonic possession' or even just leave it mysterious? Seriously a backstory like that is meant for something epic and speculative, not for a quick horror story.

Arianne said...

What no mentioning of Stephen King's Christine ?.
I'm thinking about just checking the reviews for this tv movie for now.

The guy who wrote the original story was none other than Theodore Sturgeon, the guy who coined "Sturgeon's Law" (a.k.a "90% of science-fiction is crud, but 90% of EVERYTHING is crud") and he wrote the Star Trek episode "Amok Time"

Wonder if Killdozer is the cousin of that forklift everyone tries to use to kill people.

Fun if strange ep today.

But but... Killerdozer does talk... Just watch Phelous review on the Movie... XD

But yeah, the cover is kind of silly but still probably the only thing bad about the comic. Its at least an interesting story around it...

MAXIMUM GOUGING POTENTIAL is the best kind of potential.

I like this Muerte fellow.

Thanks for the awesome series Linkara (and Muerte).

Well, at least this comic tried to work with what it had and didn't go full ridiculous with the story being about being pursed by a killer bulldover like a slasher film, the start was silly enough.

Aw, look on the bright side Moarte. At least there isn't a comic of Shovkill.

I do admit the only reason I decided to watch this was after mentally preparing myself with Phelous' review *feel free to insert the sitcom lyrics here*. And it was so worth it, seeing how this actually has quite a bit of humor. This is especially a relief ecause (honestly,in my opinion) when I usually laugh the jokes were either mildly funny, so bad it's good, or I was just feeling sarcastic. Yet again, I didn't get into horror in general until I watched LOTD and read several Creepypastas.

But this was still another very good episode

"THE COVER OF LIES!"
