While most other robot horror flicks are either an action-hybrid (The Terminator) or a psychological mind trip (Demon Seed (1977), BlinkyTM kept a simple story and brought instead a level of eeriness that's really disturbing and, in one particular scene, nauseating. By any means, making BlinkyTM a short film saved it from going downhill as the plot is good yet its very execution is fragile that anything else to exploit it might drastically change the tone of the film.

Oh look! A news article about nude beaches!
BlinkyTM, in my final words, delivers the dread. It's short and straight to the point, well-acted and supported. If it fails on the gore? Just remember, less is more. (blood splashes never looked so tame again...)
