Sci-fi western filmed in cheese-o-vision, 8 January 2006
Author: (Vomitron_G) from the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids

Boy, this movie is like a circus: a variety of bizarre and colorful characters and events spiced up with fun & cheesy special effects. I think this movie might have created a total new subgenre on it's own by mixing sci-fi/western/comedy/horror/drama/revenge flicks all together. This movie spawned from production company Full Moon, which was at it's best - in my opinion - during the late eighties and the first half of the nineties. OBLIVION, though not their best movie, is a fine example of how crazy they can get.

We've got: Spaceships, a 19th century western town with money-machines, a green alien lizard-man with an eye-patch, a cyborg-deputy, a faggot-mariachi, giant stop-motion scorpions, an S&M/Gothic-babe with a whip (Musetta Vander can lick my neck anytime), an over-friendly grim-looking undertaker, an Indian with too much brown make-up and a bad long-hair wig, a drunk Japanese dude (George Takei giving us silly STAR TREK inside jokes), midgets in a barfight, a coffin-shaped coroner's house, pyramids (huh?), an empath protagonist, a poisonous Manh-Ding, Bingo on Thursdays, Indian magic, a grande finale in the Badlands,... ehr, I'm gonna stop now, 'cause the list's getting awful long here.

This movie also has a cameo by Isaac Hayes (the man can't act, but is funny as hell), a double roll by Andrew"Djinn"Divoff as the lizard-man Redeye and a dumb hustler Einstein (slightly hilarious) and a delicious performance by hot-babe-dressed-in-leather Musetta Vander as the whippin' Lash. (Musetta also stars in MANSQUITO, which is like a b-movie cross-over between THE FLY and MIMIC, so go see it, you pulpy movie-lovers!)

What about the story of OBLIVION? Hell, who needs a story if you got all the above-mentioned ingredients? But there is one, and it's full of stupid and funny dialogues and situations. I recommend this for 90 minutes of pure ridiculous nonsense. Now, somebody please give me the sequel, OBLIVION 2: BACKLASH. I have to see it!
