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?
Most of the film was actually directed by Neal Sundstrom
rather than David Winters
, who had to drop out in an early stage of filming due to the death of a close relative. However, Sundstrom was not pleased with the end result, blaming a lack of care and attention in pre-production, and refused to be credited as anything more than co-director. Winters was equally unhappy with the film and attempted to have his name replaced with that of the fictional Alan Smithee
, but due to his contract he was unable to do so. See more
When Lea Jansen tricks the guard into removing his jumpsuit, she presses a high heeled boot against his stomach. When she escapes and is shown running up a ladder a few seconds later, the high-heeled boots have changed into stylish flat boots that clearly could not have come from the guard. See more

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
