Newly Re-mastered in HD! A Man-Made Monster with Every Human Emotion! To avoid the life-threatening dangers of manned space exploration, Professor Nordstrom (Taylor Holmes, Quicksand) creates a highly advanced form of artificial intelligence capable of piloting a starship to other worlds. In order to transmit alien data, the extraordinary robot is infused with a powerful telepathic device that enables it to instantly read and even feel emotions. Danger strikes when a sinister band of covert agents kidnaps Gadge (Billy Chapin, The Night of the Hunter), the professor's 10-year-old grandson. But Gadge has a powerful ally, for he has developed a psychic, emotional bond with his grandfather's robot, Tobor. And now Gadge's captors must suffer the wrath of his protective friend and face a mechanical monstrosity bent on a killing rampage of revenge and destruction. Serial and TV veteran Lee Sholem (Superman and the Mole Men) directed this cult classic shot by the great John L. Russell (Psycho) and starring Charles Drake (It Came from Outer Space), Karin Booth (Jungle Man-Eaters) and Steven Geray (Gilda).
