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 »

Anyone who doesn't like this movie, doesn't get it.
The directing is flat, the acting just plain awful, the makeup worse. yet 30 years after it was released, Flesh Gordon is still the funniest, cheesiest spoof of genre films outside The Simpsons.
Where else are you going to find alien sex rays, rapist robots, matching eye and nipple patches, and a narcissistic Harryhausenesque demon who would be perfectly at home in a disco if he weren't green, 40 feet tall and covered with scales?
The surprisingly good art direction (on a shoestring budget) and Hanna-Barbara sound effects finish the package.
In short, unless you're some easily-offended Christian republican in search of something to complain about, this is must-see material. And come to think about it, even if you are, you need to see it.
