One of the funniest films featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000 in the Emmy® Award nominated show's 11-year run, Space Mutiny is a hilariously bad sci-fi epic that's guaranteed to have you in stitches. Combine a wardrobe of spandex and tinfoil; a set boasting AstroTurf® and spray-painted floor buffers; and special effects that, well, aren't so special, and you've got one of the most hysterical cheeseball movies to ever come out of the '80s. Grab your friends and have a riot with this underground cult hit! Written by

The movie was filmed mostly in a factory warehouse. Aware that the numerous large windows with daylight pouring through would spoil the illusion of the Southern Sun actually being in space, cinematographer Vincent G. Cox
used color filters to give the sunlight an orange-red look, and asked David Winters
to insert a line explaining that the windows were actually part of the Southern Sun's engines and/or reactor system. Unfortunately, the film processing lab mistakenly corrected the sunlight back to its original color, and Winters' replacement, Neal Sundstrom
, never added any explanation for why the windows were there. See more
When Steve Godel (?) is thrown off the railings by Kalgan and hits the ground, his glasses fall off. There's a cut to Kalgan laughing, and in the very next cut, with the papers falling on him, his glasses are back on. See more
We've been in space too long. Let us land the ship! We can do it, we have the power.
It's true, we have the power to do this. But this would directly oppose the law of the universe, the law of the galaxy.
Forget the law.
No! The law must be upheld, we cannot break it.
Gentlemen, it seems that we are not all in agreement. Engineer Parsons seems content to spend his remaining years on the Southern Sun.
Then let him do so. Alone!
This is mutiny, this is treason, which I warn you I must report!
