Screamer - Screamers

Screamers is a cult-classic science fiction film from the mid-90's in which a distant mining planet, caught in an arms races, develops the ultimate killing machines: Screamers. The only problem is, they turn on their master. These little razor-blade wielding bots come in various incarnations, the most basic being a mechanical contraption the size of a cat that burrows through the ground like a mole and attacks anyone unfortunately to be standing above it. The concept is a classic -- ground-burrowing mechanical guard dogs. Who wouldn't want some of those?
