I have a movie that is stuck in my head but I don't know what it is called. It isn't high production, I can't find it on websites for finding a moive and it isn't in any list anywhere.

I remember one scene specifically. The hero man is at the jail in a sherriff's office and the robot attacks. The hero locks himself in a jail cell to keep away from the robot but then it slowly walks up and uses its clamp like hands to bend the bars on the door. I think the hero then destroys it somehow in a blaze of gunfire.

  • If that is the right answer, DON'T under any circumstances watch it. It is a bad, bad movie.
