There are films that sound good but suck, cheap flicks that are imitations of better efforts, and plain old bad movies, and then there are movies that are so incredibly awful that you ask, "What were these idiots thinking?"

This is one of my favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes.

I managed to get a copy of the actual original uncut movie itself in a Sci-Fi movie pack in a bargain bin.  It's one of the most unintentionally hilarious movies that I've ever seen.  The Kalgan villain is memorable for all of the wrong reasons.

Ah yes, I remember this one quite clearly from the Mystery Science Theater episode.  Every good episode, bad movie in general.  I would give this one a 2 slime rating, but that's because of the awfully cheesy special effects and the very amusing chase sequences in the floor buffer machines.  Those just make me laugh myself to tears.

Also, the lady playing Lea Jansen is obviously way too old for that part.

I remember seeing this movie.  It was hilarious.  The sets were awesome.  Especially when they're filmed in the old abandoned factory.  I remember one scene when they were supposed to be in the starship's engine room and in the background, there was a broken window with the sky and clouds visible beyond.

WOW.  That's hilarious, Andrew.  I can't wait to find an excuse to use that in a sentence.  I must now go out and set up scenarios where people and/or things scatter in all directions.  

Thanks for the website.  Always fun.

Yes, most excellently bad film.  Loved the MST3K version just for the various nick-names of "Buff Muscles", "Chester Manwich" and such.  Would have been so much better if all the women were replaced with cute young things! 

And nice quote from "Hitchhiker's Guide".

One of my favorite MST3K movies of all time! 

Is there a DVD with the uncut version?  I see the Echo Bridge DVD is a couple minutes shorter than the VHS, and I imagine the MST3K one is cut, being a TV show.

About James Ryan who played Macphearson, if you haven't already, see if you can track down his martial arts films Kill or Be Killed and Kill and Kill Again.

This film was made by a man of vision, even if that vision was obstructed by cataracts and hallucinations of old television shows and evil carnival rides  BounceGiggle. As a MST3K episode it stands among giants but I have never experienced it sans robots. It sounds like the yuks are ten-fold!

I had to check to see whether this film actually had a budget, as it is one of the cheapest looking films I've ever seen, and I've seen some cheap looking ones. It it did, I couldn't find out what it was.

This may not have done much for Reb Brown's film career, but it did wonderful things for his personal life, as he met his future wife, to whom he's still married, while making this film.

And maybe Trevor would like to comment on it, as it is apparently a joint South African-American production made in South Africa.

For some reason its South African connections are left off the credits. That happened a lot with movies made in the late '70s/'80s (see also Alien From L.A. , Prisoners of the Lost Universe, Golden Rendezvous, Hellgate, American Kickboxer 1, and so on). I can't imagine why. <Doofenschmirtz from Phineas and Ferb>And by "can't imagine" I mean "thanks to the whole apartheid thing I can see"!</Doofenschmirtz from Phineas and Ferb/>

This is the only time I will ever suggest anybody see American Kickboxer 1, by the way (a three-time offender under truth in advertising laws - there was never a sequel, the kickboxing is appalling, and the cast sounds about as American as Laetitia Casta.

James is a good friend of mine (as was the late Ivan Hall who directed these two) and those two films are safely in the care of the place I work for. I know Kill & Kill Again is freely available on DVD locally but I'm not sure about Kill or Be Killed a.k.a. Karate Olympia. The SA company MNet owns rights to both these films which means that sooner or later, DVDs will be available.

  Buggedout I will cheerfully admit that I know one of the producers, the DP of the film and the director as well so I am guilty by association, I suppose, BSK. It is also one of the few South African films that I haven't seen.

Apologies for what is coming next but I hate being raked over the coals for my country's past!!!!

I first saw this by accident on an independent TV station at 4 AM in the morning when I was suffering from insomnia.  I love the MST3K version most people are familiar with, but there's no experience like discovering a movie like this completely by accident, coming into it with no expectations whatsoever and feeling your jaw drop as you watch the Bellerians dance in front of those oh-so-mystical-and-futuristic electric plasma globes from Spencer's Gifts.

Apparently not only bricks were used in the construction of the ship, but they must be traveling near a large star, because there's a lot of light coming through those garage door windows, eh,  I mean the view ports.
