Death Machine (1994)

Death Machine is a 1994 sci-fi/cyberpunk film that centers around a ragtag group trying to survive an attack from a "Frontline Morale Destroyer" killer robot. Apparently, the screenwriters had a bit of fun when they named the characters. The character "Dante" was purportedly named after famed director Joe Dante (Gremlins). The characters named "John Carpenter" and "Sam Raimi" are obvious homages. Calling a character "Scott Ridley" is akin to named someone "Hitchcock Alfred". Also there is a nod to Aliens as two of the characters are named Weyland and Yutani.

The following weapons were used in the film Death Machine:


Bruni 1911A1

Hayden Cale (Ely Pouget) uses Jack Dante's own Colt 1911 to ward off the psychopathic genius.It is in fact an early Bruni model 8mm PAK blank firing replica. This was sold commercially all over the world. This was later improved and called the Bruni model 96.

Beretta 92

Jack Dante (Brad Dourif) threatens Haden Cale with what is supposed to be Beretta 92 with a stainless steel frame and blued slide. Like many of the weapons in the film this pistol is most likely an airgun that looks like a real Beretta.

Enraged at being tricked, Jack Dante (Brad Dourif) pulls a Beretta M92 replica to stop Hayden Cale (Ely Pouget) from firing him.

Desert Eagle .357 Magnum VII

Yutani (Martin McDougall) takes a Desert Eagle off of Jack Dante when the Humanist group captures Hayden Cale, John Carpenter and Jack Dante to get them to open the Companys' data core. John Carpenter somehow gets a hold of the Desert Eagle and uses it to force everyone to take the elevator to get out of the building. The muzzle in this scene is obviously that of a replica Desert Eagle. Inside the elevator the weapon changes to a .44 caliber Desert Eagle and he fires off several shots before being eaten by the Frontline Morale Destroyer.

FAMAS assault rifle

Sam Raimi, Yutani and Weyland all carry blank-modified FAMAS Assault Rifles. As they are useless as weapons the group abandons them for real firepower in order to survive inside the corporate headquarters.
