More like a Mod, Mod Planet
27 November 1999 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

This is one of the undisputed camp classics of science fiction, right up there with Queen of Outer Space. The future, it turns out, will look very much like a mid-sixties Paris catwalk! There are some stunningly beautiful women wearing amazing clothes and mile high bouffants in this 'science crime fiction' tale of illicit medical experiments carried out on a space station. The story is nothing to write home about, but who cares when there's so much eye candy on screen? The bad guys---you'll know who they are because they wear black leather overcoats and sunglasses---are just an added treat in this retro delight.
