Storyline

In the alien-western world of Oblivion, a suave, yet lethal bounty hunter named Sweeney arrives to arrest the seductive outlaw Lash on multiple charges, including murder. Lash, who just "inherited" a mine of Derconium (the most valuable mineral in the universe) from Crowley in a game of cards, meets up with Redeye's brother, Jaggar, who wants the mine for himself to rule the galaxy. It's a fight over Lash between the sheriff of Oblivion, Jaggar, and Sweeney. But who will emerge victorious? Written by spyguy88

Trivia

There was every intention to produce a third Oblivion movie after this one, but troubles between Full Moon and Paramount Pictures, which eventually resulted in Paramount severing their ties with Full Moon, destroyed any chance of that ever happening. See more »

Quotes

Zack Stone: Now don't get me wrong. I have great respect for women like you and Miss Kitty who manage to maintain their dignity and their loneliness in a hellhole like Oblivion. I want you to know that I am here for you... as your Marshal, as your friend, or anything else you damn well need me to be.
Mattie Chase: Zack, I haven't had sex in three years.

Padded campy sequel
6 February 2012 | by amesmondeSee all my reviews

The wild desert planet of Oblivion, bounty hunter Sweeny is search for a saboteur and all hell breaks out in town when the mark strikes a deal to control the mining of Derconium.

Backlash, is padded with a lengthy title sequence and a seven-minute round up of the FullMoon original Oblivion but still crams in plenty of what looks like made for TV action, as the Lash (Musetta Vander) joins with Jaggar (again Andrew Divoff) evil twin of reptilian Redeye.

There's a barrage of flimsy in-jokes (Star Trek's George Takei flashing the Vulcan greeting) Meg Foster, Julie Newmar, Isaac Hayes and the rest of the original cast return (as the films were conveniently shot back to back). There's a new addition Maxwell Caulfield as Sweeney but like its predecessor Vander steals the show.

Director Sam Irvin delivers more campy Western, science fiction fun but you have to be a lover of B-films to enjoy.
