Storyline

In the alien-western world of Oblivion, a suave, yet lethal bounty hunter named Sweeney arrives to arrest the seductive outlaw Lash on multiple charges, including murder. Lash, who just "inherited" a mine of Derconium (the most valuable mineral in the universe) from Crowley in a game of cards, meets up with Redeye's brother, Jaggar, who wants the mine for himself to rule the galaxy. It's a fight over Lash between the sheriff of Oblivion, Jaggar, and Sweeney. But who will emerge victorious? Written by spyguy88

Must-see for the goddess Musetta Vander's high-camp acting!
28 February 1999 | by (New Orleans, LA) – See all my reviews

This sequel is better by far than the original "Oblivion." The humor is broader, the pace is faster, and most of the movie is handed over to the extremely luscious Musetta Vander, who camps it up outrageously as the evil Betty-Page-style villainess Lash. Like its predecessor, "Backlash" relies on the plot cliches of Western movies, updated with Full Moon-style science fiction trappings. Musetta Vander steals the show here, but mention must be made of Julie Newmar's dreadfully campy performance as Miss Kitty and George Takei's demented, drunken town doc. Once more Meg Foster does the best she can with virtually nothing, and once more the rest of the cast is pretty much negligible with the exception of Maxwell Caulfield as the dandyish monster bounty hunter Sweeney. In short, a fabulously bad movie, and Musetta Vander is absolutely delicious. She dominates (pun intended) this flick! I think I'm in love...
