Description by OLDIES.com:
On a frontier light years from OK Corral, a bizarre gang of futuristic desperados have their sights set on turning the tumbleweed town of Oblivion into their own private playground. Their lizard-like leader REDEYE (Andrew Divoff), pumps lawman MARSHALL STONE (Michael Genovese) full of lead in a deadly shootout just outside of MISS KITTYS (Julie Newmar) Kat House and begins terrorizing the towns inhabitants. Meanwhile, Stones long lost pacifist son ZACK (Richard Joseph Paul) and his native sidekick BUTEO (Jimmy F. Skaggs) are escorted into town by the eerie undertaker GAUNT (Carrel Struycken) to pay their respects at the Marshalls funeral. Rendered helpless by Redeye, the tough as nails Cyborg Deputy (Meg Foster) and the Marshalls old friend DOC VALENTINE (George Takei) team up with Zack to take back the troubled town in a final unearthly showdown.
In this sci-fi/fantasy/horror/western the son of a murdered sheriff returns to the desert town of Oblivion in the year 3033 to take revenge on the reptilian alien who killed his father. Sequel: "Backlash: Oblivion 2."
On a futuristic frontier, a scaly villian known as Redeye has taken over the tiny town of Oblivion. The sheriff's dead, the android deputy's unplugged and the townsfolk are too yellow to stand up to the sharp-shooting lizard. Only Zack Stone, son of the late sheriff, has the skills to defeat the deadly creature. But as an empath (one who has the psychic ability to feel others' pain), Zach has sworn off violence. Now the town's citizens, and Zach's ladylove, must convince him to be the law in this untamed borderland.
