Trivia

As detailed in a 1976 issue of Cinefantastique, such intense animosity had built up over the sprawling course of production between the porno filmmakers and the special effects team that the FX crew was uncredited for their work. See more »

Goofs

After Flesh, Dale and Jerkoff's brief orgy on the way to the planet Porno, Dale is seen starting to get dressed. In the next shot she is naked again, and stays naked until Jerkoff gives her something to wear. See more »

Fun Parody of The Original
25 October 2003 | by moonman-6See all my reviews

This is a wonderful parody of the original serial version from the mid 1930s. The quality of acting, writing, directing, budget, costuming, and effects is dead on, almost a one-for-one match. Lots of great dialog, very quotable ("Good, there's Oxygen on this planet.").

There are two versions of this film floating around, the unrated version and a cut "R" version. The unrated version is the one to see! Most films can have "X" material edited out of them with no consequence, but not here. Whole sections of the plot (as thin as it is) are missing without the deleted footage.

This film features early work from Greg Jein, David Allen, Rick Baker, and Jim Danforth (who is listed with his name spelled backwards "Mij Htrofnad"). All went on to greater things in their careers.

Avoid the sequal from 1989, it tried too hard and fell flat on all fronts.
