Imagine a world… a twisted world… a world where, against all odds, Greydon Clark is allowed to make movie after movie in genre after genre, all while going somehow unpunished for his serious crimes against audiences and the idea of film itself.
A terrifying prospect indeed. Fortunately, we at RiffTrax are here to bring swift (perhaps even, Final?) justice for these misdeeds. Or at least, y’know, some jokes.
Dark Future sets up a rich and complex post-apocalyptic world with only one flaw: it makes absolutely no sense. The few remaining humans are kept alive in a pleasure theme park. Who uses the pleasure theme park? Robots, naturally. Because robots are famously all about physical pleasure, specifically in Wild West-themed saloon settings. That’s right, it’s an inverted Westworld! But there’s more: some shadowy figures known only as The Patrons keep sending the robots to the human pleasure world, instead of going themselves. Why? No idea. But hey, whatever you’re into is your business, Patrons, no judgment.
If Star Games was Greydon Clark’s Flight of the Navigator, then Dark Future is his That Episode of The Simpsons Where the Itchy & Scratchy Robots Attack. Don’t disappoint The Patrons, head straight into the Dark Future with Mike, Bill, and Kevin!
