Film / Killdozer

A 1974 Made-for-TV Movie based on the radical "man vs. his machines" theme that hit big and hard in the '70s and '80s. It is based on a short story by Theodore Sturgeon and concerns a group of construction workers on an uninhabited island off the coast of Africa, setting up for an oil drilling operation. One of the crew's bulldozers becomes possessed by an alien life force after its blade strikes a meteorite. The possessed dozer then takes it upon itself to hunt and kill the workers.


  • Covers Always Lie: Based on the poster it looks like a crazy bulldozer roving around some mountain-forest area killing people and ritualistically shoving graves around. The movie...not so much.
  • Energy Beings: The alien entity trapped inside the meteorite.
  • Haunted Technology: The dozer is possessed by an alien entity.
  • Homicide Machines: The possessed dozer hunts and kills the workers.
