Bad Bots

Leon and Clive try their hands at making a robot, but their creation turns out a terrible botch job, scarred by clumsy soldering and hideous to behold. Spurred on by the revulsion he everywhere encounters, the robotic monster runs amuck, finally demanding that Leon and Clive make him a female companion as the price for leaving humanity alone. Leon and Clive’s soldering has not improved, and the female robot turns out just as much of a mess as the male. Leon doubts that the two of them should ever be united, but then, as Clive says, if the robot wants to go off and live with his awfully welded wife, why shouldn’t he?

What is it with the makers of horror films and bridges?

The Bridge of Frankenstein


Not forgetting The Bridges of Dracula, of course.

Nor that terrifying saga of a bridge running amuck:

The Runaway Bridge

(a cantering cantilever! a trussed bridge not be trusted!)

Or that suspense classic:

The Bridge Wore Black
(They crossed the wrong bridge, those guys!)

But how could I forget surely the most terrifying of all?

The Bridges of Madison County ...
