Storyline

A man is in bed reading Sci-Fi mags, and his wife seduces him. He then falls asleep, and the rest is his dream. He is from an alternate world, and disguises himself as an alien, then boards their ship, to keep them from attacking his planet. The captain is a woman, who has two lesbian encounters with her crew, and whips one of them for trying to have sex with our hero. All of the women are anxious to seduce our hero, as the other two men on the ship are not very exciting. Our hero forces a landing on an asetroid (actually the outskirts of Palmdale, California) and everyone runs around topless and has sex. He then blows up the alien ship in the worst special effects explosion. Written by Scoopy

Trivia

Producer David F. Friedman didn't want the actresses to become known by name, because if they became known they would charge him more to appear in his films. Therefore, all the actresses' credited names are false. See more »

Space Thing (1968)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Corny, low-budget sexploitation film from producer David Friedman has nerdy husband James Granilla (Steve Vincent) too caught up in his sci-fi comics to pay much attention to his beautiful and horny wife. Later in the film, a look-a-like of the same character (and same actor), but now an alien, takes human form and enters a spaceship where there are plenty of beautiful women.

SPACE THING is one of the best known sexploitation films out there but I honestly don't see why. I guess the science fiction might bring a few people to the film who wouldn't normally watch these softcore films but there's very little here in regards to entertainment. The film was obviously shot on a shoestring budget but this adds some campy charm and especially with the ultra cheap sets. The film also manages to load up on the beautiful women and as you'd expect there's non-stop nudity from start to end.

I really wouldn't be shocked if this thing had a lower budget than PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE or ROBOT MONSTER. Those two films were so bad yet they're entertaining and rather charming. I can't say the same thing about SPACE THING because it's just too slow for its own good.
