Neo, a drifter from the atomic-blasted wastelands, arrives with his klutzy robot sidekick at a factory where slaves labor to fuel the sinister Dark One’s Power Station. There, he meets a comely woman who convinces him to help rescue her scientist father, who has invented a device that can break the Dark One’s control over the slaves. Gathering a motley crew of allies on the way, Neo and pals travel to the Power Station, where they confront the Dark One’s evil servants.

User Reviews: "Robot Holocaust" (aka. Robots Conquer the World) is one Turkey of a NY-USA/Italian film. Even though I don’t mind post- end of the world films, but THIS does not quite cut it, unless it’s the MSTied version that is.
The film is full of emotionless plastic looking robots, one robot whom constantly cracks corny jokes, killer sockpuppets, heroes and heroines in skimpy outfits, villainess that can’t speak English well, Omnipressant being called "The Dark One" (Oooooooh, scarry! NOT!) and a captive that looks like a human avacado. How can anyone take this seriously? Most everyone I watched this MST3K episode with laughed their heads off and wondered if this film was a comedy.
The irony is, "Robot Holocaust" is not a Comedy, but it will make you laugh at how cheap it is.
