For someone who made a lot of money writing about technology, Michael Crichton sure freaks out a lot about it. Most of his books/films boil down to "Ah! The (fill in the blank) are gonna get us!" This could be robotic cowboys ("Westworld"), genetically engineered dinosaurs ("Jurassic Park"), killer apes ("Congo"), aggressive women ("Disclosure"), or the Japanese ("Rising Sun"). 1984's "Runaway," which Crichton wrote and directed, is one of his technology run amuck films. It's the future and household and worker robots are going nuts. Future cop Tom Selleck will get to the bottom of it. It turns out an evil dude played by Gene Simmons of Kiss is behind it. I don't know why he's doing it, but we definitely know why he wears the make-up. Cynthia Rhodes, G.W. Bailey, and a pre-Cheers Kirstie Alley star. It's moderately entertaining and the acid shooting spider bots are cool, but I think "The Terminator," which came out the same year, sorta overshadowed this.
