'Metal Shifters'
(Kavan Smith, Nicole de Boer, Donnelly Rhodes, Chris Gauthler, et al / DVD / PG-13 / 2012 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)

Overview: It traveled millions of light years through space before colliding with a Soviet satellite and crashing into rural Redeemer, Idaho. Now an alien bacterium that transforms steel objects into furious killing machines has infected the local scrapyard.

DVD Verdict: While two brothers are considering the sorry state of their finances, out of the blue pieces of a destroyed Soviet satellite crash onto the property of an Idaho farmer. The brothers arrive too late to save the poor farmer but, being mercenary and in need of some fast cash, finders keepers, they sell the scrap to a local junkman (Donnelly Rhodes).

As it would happen, the junkman was building what he calls an Iron Golem for the town's upcoming centennial. Some hitchhiking bacteria from the Soviet scraps glom onto this Golem and off it goes, out for blood!

First seen on the SyFy Channel, of course, the special effects were anything but special - although I did like the scenes where the pieces of junk were crawling around on their own!
