Legendary underground short is certainly interesting for camp and historical purposes
25 October 2006 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

This legendary underground short is certainly interesting for camp and historical purposes, but it's far from being the best film from the American movement. The works of Kenneth Anger easily have it trumped. However, fans of John Waters are recommended to check it out. Filmed without sound (only narration in the style of Criswell) and in someone's house, this film is about how in the future humans have created androids named Fleshapoids. They are loyal subjects until when one day a rebellious robot decides to overthrow his human captors. It all leads to an orgy of carnality (as many of these films do).

This film has gained a cult following and remains one of the most well-known artifacts of the American underground film movement of the 60s. It's an important film but isn't the most entertaining. There's a few nice and amusing moments, but for the most part it drags, even in its brief running time of 45 minutes. I'd pick "Scorpio Rising" over this any day. (5/10)
