Name That Trauma :: Reader Rick G. on a Big Black Gun

June 10th, 2009 by aunt john · 8 Comments

I’m looking for a movie from the ’80s or maybe the ’90s where a teen or a guy in his twenties builds a futuristic gun or laser type weapon and in the end is killed. Seems the gun had a pack that went with it and it was black. The kid who possessed it had long dark hair, looked like some rocker kid and seem like his family life wasn’t very good either. Sorry I can’t describe it more except that I doubt highly it was a comedy. Thanks!

UNK SEZ: Rick G, I was pretty sure you were talking about 1978’s LASERBLAST until you mentioned the character having long dark hair. Sorry I could not help you but at least you have given me the excuse to post the LASERBLAST video below…(as you can see this laser toting dude has blonde hair). Hopefully one of our readers can help you better than I!

    No idea what the movie described above could be…

    Although I do remember “Lazerblast” from MST3K. It was a movie that you could count on having two things-sheet cake and back fat.

    The 1989 flick “Deadly Weapon” deals with a teen who comes upon a super-secret weapon that he uses to get even with his tormentors. Here’s a photo of Rodney Eastman with his gun…

    Look familiar?

    Wow. Even if DEADLY WEAPON is not the flick (looks like it might be to me) That is some seriously awesome detective work Senski! In any case I have to see that movie for the cast…Rodney Eastman from ELM STREET 4, SUSAN BLU from FRIDAY 7, SASHA JENSON from HALOWEEN 4 and was that one of the Heathers I saw in the youtube clip? I have to find this movie as soon as possible.

    Thanks, Unk! I’m massaging the Interweb on behalf of some other lost Traumas that are still outstanding, so please keep an eye out on the older ones. I’m thrilled beyond words that I found that children’s book about the killer crocodile purse!
