THE NEW GLADIATORS (1984) - Lucio Fulci

Rollerball meets The Running Man on a Troma Films budget. I was hoping for a little more Conquest-style sci-fi/fantasy lunacy from this one. Alas, it was strictly by the book.

Other than some shoebox and Christmas lights city miniatures and an excess of sparkle filter lenses (see above), there's not much going on in the Year 2072 that you can't already see on reality TV in 2011. Like The Psychic, this one is for Fulci completists only.
