Death Machines (1976)

By most accounts, this appears to be a fairly terrible movie (full disclosure: we haven’t seen it), but we felt compelled to include it in today’s column because its poster is kind of amazing. For those of you inclined to buy it, though, this odd martial arts action flick from 1976 includes a commentary track, outtakes, interviews, and more.
