A troubled teenager with a really cool van finds an alien weapon and pendant/power source in the desert. Donning the artifacts allows the lad to begin a laser-powered rampage against his enemies (and mutate into an alien!) in this sci-fi outing that features stop-motion ETs by Dave Allen ("Equinox"). Kim Milford, Cheryl Smith, Eddie Deezen, Keenan Wynn, and Roddy McDowall star. 83 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
