Hardcore sequences were seized by police in a raid. The director was forced to view the film in the judge's chambers and all hardcore material was removed. See more »
In one of the first scenes, a character clearly says, "Dr. Gordon, all of us here are aware of the total degragation that has overcome the masses." Obviously, he was meant to say "degradation." See more »

This is a wonderful parody of the original serial version from the mid 1930s. The quality of acting, writing, directing, budget, costuming, and effects is dead on, almost a one-for-one match. Lots of great dialog, very quotable ("Good, there's Oxygen on this planet.").
There are two versions of this film floating around, the unrated version and a cut "R" version. The unrated version is the one to see! Most films can have "X" material edited out of them with no consequence, but not here. Whole sections of the plot (as thin as it is) are missing without the deleted footage.
This film features early work from Greg Jein, David Allen, Rick Baker, and Jim Danforth (who is listed with his name spelled backwards "Mij Htrofnad"). All went on to greater things in their careers.
Avoid the sequal from 1989, it tried too hard and fell flat on all fronts.
