The Day the Earth Stood Still
Alien Ambassador Klata, along with a robot named Gort, arrives on Earth with a very peculiar peacekeeping mission, but everything goes completely out of the picture.

The cruel thriller of Verkhovena, in which a half-robot half-man stands in the service of the law and, as necessary, wets and shreds other robots and people.
