Vintage Robots: Part Two

Following on from The Mechanical Man, here is a modern independent scifi film that uses a retro look — including being in black-and-white — for its robots. It’s called Automatons (US-2006) and was directed by James Felix McKenny.

The retro appeal makes this look like a SF movie to watch out for — not to mention the fact that it has Angus Scrimm (“The Tall Man” of Phantasm fame) in it.
