“We were obviously in a demented frenzy as we had equal access to The Hills Have Eyes, THX 1138, Eraserhead, The Omega Man, Soylent Green, Zardoz, A Boy and His Dog, Logans Run, Damnation Alley, Dawn of the Dead, Alien, Blasé Runner, Terminator, Brazil etc… and we were still asked to program the video recorder, which was like magic to our parents.” Austin Ivers.
