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?
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

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
