Delirious fun with something for everybody
18 April 2019 | by jamesrupert2014See all my reviews

A low-budget Mexican science fiction movie with 'borrowed' Russian special effects about two Venusian women in space-bathing-suits (and their robot) who are searching for men to help repopulate their planet PLUS a singing cowboy, a vampire, space monsters, and a hint of interplanetary miscegenation - what more could anyone want?! The film stars Mexican comedian Eulalio González and despite some grisly scenes (at the expense of the very improbable looking monsters) is played strictly for laughs. Some of the special effects (such as the space-walk) were lifted from the excellent Russian futurist documentary 'Doroga k zvezdam' (1957), the rest are strictly bottom-of-the-barrel (except an oddly effective glimpse of the 'vampire' in flight). 'Ship of Monsters' is weird stuff but it is entertaining enough in a singular way and deserves to be better known in cult-film circles.
