Plot Summary for Screamers (1995)
(SIRIUS 6B, Year 2078) On a distant mining planet ravaged by a decade of war, scientists have created the perfect weapon: a blade-wielding, self-replicating race of killing devices known as Screamers designed for one purpose only -- to hunt down and destroy all enemy life forms But man's greatest weapon has continued to evolve without any human guidance, and now it has devised a new mission: to obliterate all life. Col. Hendricksson (Peter Weller) is commander of a handful of Alliance soldiers still alive on Sirius 6B. Betrayed by his own political leaders and disgusted by the atrocities of this never-ending war, Hendricksson decides he must negotiate a separate peace with the New Economic Bloc's decimated forces. But to do so, he will have to cross a treacherous wasteland where the deadliest threat comes from the very weapons he helped to create.



Just finished watching it. I think it was per someone's recommendation on this site.
The story was written by Philip K. Dick, the same guy who did the stories for Total Recall, Blade Runner, Minority Report, etc.

This wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would have been whe I remember it first coming out. I figured it would be pretty freakin lame and the whole movie woul be about the little "screamers" that attack from underneath the ground. I never realized it was about how they "evolved" into variosu different types. By the end I had pretty much figured what was going to happen, but still.

I'm a little surprsed it wasn't a lot gorier than it was. But overall it was a decent watch.

it was a good movie....freaky in a way, it reminded me of some of the footage of the Soviet/Afgan war I saw where toys and other innocuous objects were boobytrapped, etc.

Are you kidding?



One of my favorite "sci-fi" movies ever. Peter Weller rocked in this movie.
Screamers? Eh... could have been anyone. I think this movie was pretty much the last drop in his bucket of luck.
He was pretty creepy in First Born too.
