THE ICE PIRATES / JF Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer - 1984
Here's a movie for our pal, John Maffee, this is/was his favorite bad movie! Almost every eighties horror or sci-fi flick was some kind of total rip off of like four different seventies classics. In other words, it's cursed...
Rather than try and tell you what the movie's about, there a still with that explains it for me... Phew, saved me a few brain cells.
Well, it all starts with our hero reclaiming the toilet (by smashing the door down) from their ugly little alien pal who won't get off the pot. Then, once in, the stank is so intense that it smells the whole ship up!
Of course, there has to be a sleeping princess for the love interest, this movie has it all!
Here's our heroes very un-pirate, pirate ship... Boring!
The guys get captured and are cleaned up to be servants at a rock and roll alien party.
Bring in the ALIEN rip off creature, but, make him look goofy since this is a comedy.
There are weird 6-wheeled solar powered cars and huge steam roller death machines on this Mad Max style planet. I like the big roller thing with the skull head used for intimidation!
Anyway, it's time to hit the old hyper drive!
I've included this pic, because, I just saw an episode of AMERICAN PICKERS where they came across one of those eighties JVC Videosphere Space Helmet TVs, so, I knew what it was!
Things get worse before things get better for our spaced out heroes. Tune in tomorrow for another special post, here at The Dungeon!!
