Horror Short Film “Slaughterbots” | ALTER

In a dystopian world a new form of A.I. weaponry has been created. All these drone bots need is a profile: age, sex, fitness, uniform, and ethnicity. Nuclear is obsolete. Take out your entire enemy virtually risk free. Just characterize him, release the swarm, and rest easy.

More About Slaugherbots:
The 7 minute film opens with a Silicon Valley CEO-type delivering a product presentation to a live audience a la Steve Jobs. The presentation seems innocuous enough at first—the presenter seems to be unveiling some new drone technology—but takes a dark turn when he demonstrates how these autonomous drones can slaughter humans like cattle by delivering “a shaped explosive” to the skull.The audience eats it up, clapping and laughing along with the CEO as if they hadn’t witnessed anything more dangerous than the unveiling of the iPhone X. The CEO goes further, showing videos of the tiny killer drone in action. “Let’s watch what happens when the weapons make the decisions,” the CEO says, as the bot executes a number of people on the massive screen behind him. “Now trust me, these are all bad guys.” What follows is a deeply unsettling portrait of a dystopian world where these small weaponised drones use their onboard technologies—“cameras like you use for your social media apps, facial recognition like you have on your phones!”—to make autonomous decisions about who lives and who dies.

    An armored beekeeper’s suit will foil these

  2. Hendrik on April 14, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    they cant be stopped, lets try a emp and see if they still fly also who makes the rules, who is bad and who is good? or do we forget that 90% of the politicians are all bad ?

  3. m on April 14, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    – This was _actually_ scary, unlike _The Drone_ (2019) which was hilarious. 😕
    – Skynet isn’t as fantastically unrealistic anymore. 🤦

  4. TheJwlasichuk on April 14, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    I see personal EMP suits and building radius EMP safety domes like a fence above and around structures. It is quite frankly disturbing, that so many humans are destructive and think that they have the solutions to the worlds problems. WE are our own extinction alongside Mother Nature. Love to all.

  5. Jean Redondo on April 14, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    The thing is killer drones doesn’t belong in a dystopian future but they are already real. Insect sized drones have been developed , a lot tinier than those ones. Alarms are already ringed about the association with Biological warfare. Imagine drones that are not bigger than an ant leg, almost invisible, charged with an hardcore infectious disease… We should all focus on such subjects and collectively push all governments to ban those things. Same goes for Autonomous Nuclear Weapons. The Pandemic we’ve been through is nothing compared to those threats.

  6. David Anderson on April 14, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    Aw dang! I thought the senator attack was real!

  7. RTB9000 alphacentauri on April 14, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    Look up "multiple re-entry vehicles" MERVS. Scary as well. I think was is equally terrifying is all the people who think this is a funny, making jokes etc. This man is trying to show you what modern security weapons will look like and why this technology is scary. But then again, most people I meet in the real world are equally as stupid

  8. Matt Wood on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Imagine any dystopian future that is possible and the powerful will see to it that it becomes a reality. They have shown again and again that they will do ANYTHING to ensure that they are never on the losing end of anything. The powerless are manipulated by the powerful so that we fight among ourselves – we are not each other’s enemies – but all of us together are an enormous threat to those in power – ONLY if we realize their game – and only if we unite to break the rules that keep them from all accountability.

    tennis racket the only defence….lol

  10. Joe Jones on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Tennis rackets are on sale at sporting goods stores all across America! this movie is bullshit. Those tiny drones would have batteries that offer only SECONDS of flight time.

  11. Jonathan Thompson on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Lmao a helmet guys….its called a helmet.

  12. Gary D. Crowley on April 14, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    This is more bone chilling than any ghost or demon story. This could be very real and the apparition of the professor really gives the appropiate effect.

  13. Kevin South city on April 14, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Like move both and forth duh

  14. TheSolidheroes on April 14, 2022 at 6:13 pm

  20. Ninja 87 on April 14, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Russia should have invested in a jumbo jet load, would have saved them a ton of money.

  21. Jayson Colbert on April 14, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    So we are either gonna die by mother nature or by artificial intelligence……thanks Jesus glad u saved us. Should have just dropped the cross and left

    well…. since there is still no political base to stop this…. no Goverment on the entire world willing to stand against this. This has aged terrible.
