Flesh Gordon 1974 ★★★

Quite simply, a sexploitation parody of Flash Gordon. It's hilariously camp and it's stupidity and terrible acting know no bounds - but that's not really the point. It's fun, it's silly, it doesn't care. There are bodies of all shapes, sizes and colours writhing in every shot, it doesn't discriminate, all flesh is flesh!
Some genuinely astounding stop-motion and make-up work by legendary effects artist Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London, Michael Jackson's Thriller video) belong in a far-better film, and The Great God Porno is voiced to hilarious effect by Craig T. Nelson.
