Alternate Versions

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 »

The original campy classic salute to bad movies
28 March 2008 | by d-millhoffSee all my reviews

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.
