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

In one of the first scenes, a character clearly says, "Dr. Gordon, all of us here are aware of the total degragation that has overcome the masses." Obviously, he was meant to say "degradation." See more »

I never liked the Flash Gordon (1980). It was full of cheap effects and the story wasn't my thing at all. years later I came across this flick. knowing that it was a spoof. When I looked at the year it was made I knew it would have some stupid effects but what a great flick it was after all.

Not really knowing what to expect from it I was surprised with the fun I had. Be aware, it's a low budget flick with cheap effects indeed and some stop motion monsters but it's the story that makes it really great. Don't think to see some excellent comedy, it's more a exploitation spoof, I may even say a sex spoof full of nudity. If I tell you that Professor Jerkoff is in it or that they go to planet Porno then you know enough. Don't watch it for the acting or the editing, it's really one of the worst kind you will see. But as i said, the stop motion is sometimes okay but the one with the, look at the name, penissaurus is really terrible. But the fact that it contains full frontal nudity makes it not watchable for everybody. And it has a lot of nudity, full frontal, pubic hair shots, boners, and even some gang banging. But don't get me wrong, it isn't a porn flick.

Only William Dennis Hunt (emperor Wang) went further in the business and is still making flicks. The main leads, Jason Williams (Flesh Gordon) stopped in 1995 but never made a notable flick. Suzanne Fields (Dale Ardor) was popular in nudity flicks but vanished one year after this flick in obscurity. Nothing is known after 1976 about her, we don't even know if she's still alive.

If you want to see a real campy flick than this is surely one to recommend, I know that there are many haters for Flesh Gordon but it surprised me and I really enjoyed it.
