I am trying to find old movie that I saw as a kid. Now I am not even sure if that one scene that I remember is accurate in my memory. But here is what I remember:

  • it happened on spaceship
  • there was some evil scientist with robots
  • one of the good guys was killed by the robot with some blades/drills or something like that (the scientist commanded the robot to do it)

Now I found similar scene in The Black Hole 1979, but I am sure it’s not it because there were no people, maybe just +1 except the scientist and the victim, and also the whole killing scene was longer and you could actually saw the blades/drills entering the body and killing that man.

  • When were you a kid?

  • Iam not remember how old I was in that time :-D But lets say I think it cannot be newer than 1995. So certainly 1995 and older

    I know you say it's not the match, but you're describing The Black Hole pretty closely. I've found that a lot of the scenes I "remember" watching from when I was very young were heavily edited in my memory to be much more graphic than they actually were.

    @moopet right I know but I really remember it differently. The sets were more bright maybe even white and you could really saw that guy be pierced. I believe this part is not my mind imagination over the years

    Reminiscent of Saturn 3 Apr 5, 2020 at 21:21

1 Answer 1


My immediate trigger: Movie Saturn 3 (1980): Kirk Douglas, Farrah Fawcett and Harvey Keitel on deep space (Saturn) space station.

Trapped in the control room, both Alex and Adam are surprised to see Benson's face on their monitor. The two are directed by a voice they recognize as Benson's to leave the control room, both surprised that Benson is even alive. To their shock, the two are confronted by Hector, now wearing Benson's head.

  • Still, not a bad match, and partial or wrong answers that still match are worthy answers.
