Let’s face it – Tokka and Rahzar in the original movies didn’t scare any of us half as much as when Bebop and/or Rocksteady showed up at the end of a level in the arcade game and started kicking our young gamer asses. Thanks to a Cracked article, I came across a trailer for a fan film that gives me flashbacks to that “Oh shit, my Turtle’s gonna die now” vibe I used to get back in the day (which was irrational, given that I only played using huge rolls of quarters that didn’t run out).
Seriously, seeing these guys in motion, slobbering and shooting off automatic weapons while drunk, is pretty damn creepy. If Sheamus and Uncle Ruckus are even close to this in the real movie sequel I’ll be impressed (which is unlikely).
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
