The first Terminator is principally a horror film first, due largely to Linda Hamilton’s and Michael Biehn’s improbable performances. The Terminator is about John Conner’s father, Kyle Reese (Beihn) going again in time to guard Sarah Connor from the T-800, performed by Arnold Schwarzenegger. But that makes it a person vs. machine story, which is already terrifying in itself. Add in the truth that robots are being despatched from the longer term to hunt folks down and kill them, and also you elevate the scare issue as much as 11. Yes, it’s form of the identical factor in T2 because the T-1000 is searching John Connor, however T2 is extra about machine vs. machine, which isn’t practically as scary as man vs. machine, which may, I do not know, perhaps occur someday?
