Instant Terror Tuesday: Futureworld (1976) It's Epcot Center Meets The Manchurian Candidate
With almost none of the cast from the first film returning, this story of the Delos resort picks up with journalist Chuck Browning (Peter Fonda), the reporter who got the scoop on the tragedy in Westworld, and television anchor Tracy Ballard (Blythe Danner) being invited to the grand reopening of the resort. This time in addition to Romanworld, Westworld, and Medieval world, vacationers can choose to go to walk in space and ski on Mars with a visit to the new Futureworld. That’s not all that’s new either. From top to bottom the resort has been retrofitted with new robots and new safety features that would prevent anything from ever going wrong. However Chuck and Tracy eventually uncover a plot to replace all the world’s leaders and tastemakers with organically grown duplicates.
