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

Did You Know?
Aware that the numerous 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 about how the "windows" were actually part of the Southern Sun's engines and/or reactor system. Unfortunately, Cox's efforts were in vain, as the film processing lab mistakenly corrected the sunlight back to its original color, and Winters' replacement, Neal Sundstrom
neglected to film any explanation as to what the windows were doing there. See more
When Kalgan is torturing Lea Jansen, he says that he wants her father's countermeasures. But when she is rescued and finds out MacPhearson is working for Kalgan, Capt. Devers is worried because MacPhearson knows all of the ship's countermeasures. If MacPhearson knows the countermeasures, then Kalgan does too, so there is no reason to bring it up while he is torturing Lea. 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!
In the UK rental release (at least), when the credit for 'Post Production Supervisor' scrolls onto the screen in the end credits the camera seems to zoom in, and then when the credit is leaving the screen it zooms out again. See more
