6/10
Ambitious soft porn bloody classic Nonsense!

Warning: Spoilers
Great futuristic stylized "3D" animation. I loved it in 1981 when I was a young teenager! Graphic violence, colorful red and green blood, decapitations and severed limbs, explosions and fire, etc. The impossibly-drawn always-naked women with over-developed "Little Annie Fanny" Playboy-type "T & A" bodies. Simulated sex. Animated female frontal nudity. Drug abuse (Radioactive "cocaine" sniffing by aliens.) No wonder it still plays well on the midnight circuit with the likes of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" and various gross "Wes Craven" inspired horror flicks. A bad anthology with 6 or 7 stories all tied together, told by the Evil Green Orb "Loc-Nar" that either turns people into (mostly) monsters or Gods. It steals from "The Incredible Hulk" as a few men become impossibly muscular! Great music and voices by several notable people, including Joe Flattery and John Candy. Rock and Roll and The London Symphonic Orchestra! Except for the superior imaginative animation, it's horrid and quite Sophomoric, like the gory "Tales From the Crypt". Shown completely uncut on free cable!
