One man's art is another man's garbage...
4 December 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wow. This movie gives all new meaning to the word 'bad'. This is an absolutely stupid and nearly worthless film, yet I also know that when it debuted the 'with it' people loved it for its brilliance--the same types who fawned over everything Andy Worhol produced at the time as well. This group of devoted fans make up .01% of the population (give or take .01%) and the rest of us (the normals) look at this film with disbelief--disbelief that a film manages to be much worse than Ed Wood's famed PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. Just watch the insane birth scene at the end of the film or the Grecian sets and you'll know what I mean.

Now this does not mean that the film is 100% bad. The basic story idea of robots becoming more human over time isn't bad (though you really see none of this on film--just in the narration) and some of the color home movie shots are a bit sexy, but otherwise what's the point?! This is like a home movie of total strangers and weirdos that you are forced to watch! The film has no dialog (other than cartoon bubbles that are scrawled sloppily onto the film) and the acting is, to put it charitably, amateurish.

So why did I see this film? Well, recently John Waters talked about various films that influenced him--including SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS. Well, I can see how this film encouraged Waters to show his rough home movies about Baltimore and the cheapness of his early films (like MONDO TRASHO and THE DIANE LINKLETTER STORY) clearly was inspired by this Kuchar Brothers film. However, unlike the early rough Waters films, FLESHAPOIDS isn't the least bit funny or entertaining. Waters' early movies, though crudely made and cheap and garish, were oddly fun. SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS is fun--in pretty much the same way a root canal is fun!

Overall, a complete waste of time. Instead, ask grandpa to show you his old super 8mm films from the 1960s--they can't be any worse than this.
