12 Moments From 'The Running Man' That Prove It's The Weirdest Stephen King Movie Ever Made

Loosely-based (and I do mean LOOSELY) on the Stephen King story of the same name, The Running Man has Arnold Schwarzenegger starring as Ben Richards, a former helicopter pilot framed for a massacre who is forced to compete in a deadly game show for his freedom.

It's an amazing slice of 80s action cheese, and if you haven't seen it, you owe it to yourself. In particular, these 12 moments prove that it's one of The Governator's absolute best.

First, let's talk about how Family Feud's Richard Dawson played the villain.

And don't forget the cast of colorful "Running Man" contestants, like Buzzsaw...

Or Fireball...

Here's Subzero... now plain zero...

And who could forget Dynamo?

But I know what you're really here for: the Arnie quotes...

The interplay between 'Ahhnold' and Dawson is great.

Like genuinely great.

The Governator gets plenty of great one-liners whenever he beats someone.

Like, seriously great.

Okay this one's a little forced, but we still love it.

How great is this one?

And of course, the best is when he just absolutely loses it.

What's your favorite moment from The Running Man?
