Killdozer (1974)

Nomination Year: 1996
SYNOPSIS:  On a secluded island, a team of construction workers labors to build a new facility. As they clear land with their bulldozer, the dozer hits a strange, glowing rock -- a meteor. The glow leaves the rock and enters the bulldozer. Now the construction machine is possessed of an alien intelligence, and the only thing it wants is to kill the puny humans! One by one, it murders all but two of the crew. The wily survivors lure it into an electrical trap and short it out.

Most Ludicrous Premise

What's Next, Killer Toilet Seats? Hmmm...
A meteor falls to earth and gives murderous intelligence to, of all things, a massive bulldozer. WHY?

Acting Appropriately Stupid

Half His Ancestors Were Crushed by the Glaciers
Even knowing that there's a homocidal bulldozer on the loose, one of the survivors gets drunk and steals a Jeep to go off swimming -- alone. The others find him in the Jeep just as Killdozer is bearing down on him from a good football-field away, and the Jeep won't start. Now let's face it: even at full clip, Killdozer travels at, like, 2 mph. Geez, even if you had a broken leg, you could walk away from Killdozer. But does this guy get out and run? No, he stays in the vehicle, trying to start it, until he's crushed. Sigh. Killdozer's slow, but some morons are slower.
