The enduring popularity of the film has led to several pieces of merchandising including resin kit models of the monsters, a 1982 home video game, and a 1992 comic book series. See more »
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 »
The 1988 UK video release was cut by 1 min 16 secs by the BBFC to heavily edit the forced seduction of Dale by one of the lesbian warrior women and to remove a closeup of the shaved pubic region of one of Chief Nellie's guards. The 2001 widescreen Special Edition DVD is fully uncut. See more »
Anyone who doesn't like this movie, doesn't get it.
The directing is flat, the acting just plain awful, the makeup worse. yet 30 years after it was released, Flesh Gordon is still the funniest, cheesiest spoof of genre films outside The Simpsons.
Where else are you going to find alien sex rays, rapist robots, matching eye and nipple patches, and a narcissistic Harryhausenesque demon who would be perfectly at home in a disco if he weren't green, 40 feet tall and covered with scales?
The surprisingly good art direction (on a shoestring budget) and Hanna-Barbara sound effects finish the package.
In short, unless you're some easily-offended Christian republican in search of something to complain about, this is must-see material. And come to think about it, even if you are, you need to see it.
