October Horror Movie Challenge: The Black Hole (1979)
I saw it again on VHS about 20 years ago and then again this past weekend with my wife and son.
Connor: "This is boring and not scary at all. I knew the 'robots' were people from the start. He didn't have an materials to make robots."
I have to concur. There are some frightening elements and the story really is a mad scientist in an old, maybe haunted castle. Even the images of hell make this more horror in space than sci-fi.
The version I watched looked fantastic, but that doesn't make up for some glaring errors in this movie. I remember back when I was 9 thinking the robots should not have psychic powers and I still think that.
