Killdozer (1974) – Made for TV Cheeze That Brings Back Memories

Killdozer was a 1984 ABC made for TV movie about an American construction crew working on a small island off the West coast of Africa building an airstrip that become victims to one of their heavy bulldozers that becomes possessed by an ancient force that fell from space a long time ago. 

The movies starts with a shot of a meteorite (meteor at that point, I think), plunging to Earth, coming to rest on the island. Next, we cut to modern (1974) day where the Mack, (played by a young Robert Urich), a member of the construction crew runs into trouble while trying to move a strange metallic rock. Unable to move it, his  Foreman Kelly (Clint Walker, tries, but when the blade of the bull dozer makes contack with the rock, a blue light emanates from the rock, jumping to the blade of the dozer, and throwing Mack in to convulsions, that later end with his death. Soon the remainig crew are picked off one by one by this possessed bull dozer. They try to survive, why looking for a way top stop the mechanical monster.

I know the premise sounds stupid (no, is stupid), but I watched this originally as a kid and it really stuck in my mind – especially the epic battle between an excavator and the bull dozer – fun stuff. This isn’t an amazing piece of film history, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting, while not stellar, is acceptable – and at just under an hour and 10 minutes, it won’t take much time from your life.

I’ve just discovered that the whole film is available on Youtube, and have included a link to that below.

Here’s the trailer:

And look what I found here: the whole damned movie on Youtube:
