During the late 80s in NYC there used to be the 4:30 Movie. I remembering watching Laserblast on it for the first time. There was a movie, that I don't remember much about except that someone was hiding in a room and a small ship or device was cutting a hole through the door with a laser in a circular pattern. The ship or device was basketball sized.

Anyone know the name of that short or movie?

  • Anything else you can remember about the film? Was it a horror film or action? Was it in space station/ship or on earth? What did the basketball device look like? The Phantasms series features a killer robot thing that looks like a chrome ball, but it has drills and claws sticking out of it. Aug 3, 2017 at 13:54
  • It was a scifi thriller. It was on earth, a house. I remember person running into the room to hide, shutting the door behind themselves. HMM..I am pretty sure it was a some sort of what looks like a miniature space ship.
