With every other film ever released being remade into a slick and soulless studio product, you'd be forgiven for worrying about the impending Robocop re-do.

While we have another two years to wait for the big-budget outcome, we can satisfy ourselves with this small-scale attempt at replicating the 80s magic.

The Old Murder House Theater troupe put on a live production of the sci-fi classic, utilising cardboard sets and potentially lethal pyrotechnics. They included most of the main moments in the hour-long show and even found time for a musical number, entitled 'I am Robocop'.

You can see some highlights below:
