Another laugh-riot that's part of Mill Creek's SCI-FI INVASION 50 MOVIE PACK.

Yup, it's another extremely cheap and silly dubbed Italian space opera.  Although, you'd never suspect this after reading the Anglicized opening credits.

The opening scene takes place on a very cheesy spaceship set (is that structure in the middle of the floor . . . dare I ask . . . really an air hockey table?????)  Most of the characters (especially the villain) wear laughable costumes that look like they were left over from the old Buster Crabbe FLASH GORDON serials.

Anyway, after a rather dull space battle, the hero and heroine escape in a smaller ship and land on Earth where they meet a tribe of people who teach them about kissing, love, and sex.  In the midst of all this, we are treated to a ridiculous tribal dance that seems to have been choreographed and rehearsed in a span of about 30 minutes.

Now back to the villain, who provides much of the cheesy humor in this movie.  He's a black guy with silver glitter on his face who wears an outfit that seems to be a cross between the costume worn by Ming the Merciless and the costume worn by a typical court jester.  He's supposed to be some sort of mighty galactic tyrant, yet he seems to have only a couple of crew members aboard his mother ship and his combat fleet consists of about 1/2 dozen model ships flying around in front of colorful light bulbs representing the universe.

Have fun watching this one, if you dare . . .

Oh I remember that, they went to earth back in the stone age and all the girls were wearing sort of cheerleader outfits.  I'll have to watch that again  BounceGiggle

The original title is "Giochi erotici nella terza galassia" ("Erotic games in the Third Galaxy"). Director Bitto Albertini was the one to thank for the "Three Supermen" saga.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
