Original soundtrack - electronic score.
This is the first-ever original film score by two veterans in the sci-fi
film and TV genre: The first being Richard Band, known
later for such works as METALSTORM, RE-ANIMATOR, PIT AND THE
PENDULUM, GHOULIES, PUPPET MASTER as well as Television episodes of STARGATE SG-1
and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. The second featured composer is Jerry
Goldsmith's talented son Joel Goldsmith, who later went on to
score films such as KULL THE CONQUERER, JOBMAN, WATCHERS, and VAMPERELLA.
He also handled the regular scoring chores for the TV series THE
UNTOUCHABLES, STARGATE SG-1 and STARGATE: ATLANTIS.
For LASERBLAST, Richard and Joel employed innovative electronic
techniques which pre-dated the use of MIDI and other digital mediums.
Also included are a number of fun rock and roll source cues which have
turned up in THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW.
The score is a surprising mixed bag of unusual styles which in some
areas have an element of camp, but also show many hints of what was to
develop in later scores by both Richard and Joel.

SYNOPSIS - Billy (Kim Milford) has the same problems that many teens have to endure. His mother is
inattentive, local cops target him for speeding tickets, his girlfriend's grandfather hates him, and teenaged
bullies make fun of his van. Billy finds the keys to his emancipation in the desert, when he stumbles across
a laser gun left behind by a pair of aliens. As he exacts revenge upon his unsuspecting tormentors, he
becomes overwhelmed by the power of the gun and turns into a crazed, green-faced monster. 1978
