Tagline – The seed is planted… the nightmare grows

Forbidden World (1982) Mike Colby (Jesse Vint) SAM-104 robot space ship cockpit

Space maverick Mike Colby (Jesse Vint) is peacefully sleeping in his stasis pod dreaming of wet t-shirt competitions. Until he’s rudely awaken by a fleet of approaching ships intent on blowing him to smithereens. Lucky his trusty robot SAM-104 (Don Olivera) is holding the fort but as the deadly force gets ever closer he needs Mike’s battle skills. After an explosive battle the victorious duo of Mike and Sam find the ship is in need of repairs. Piece of luck, they just so happen to be on course for the planet Xarbia. Now let’s get straight into the flirting.

Dr. Barbara Glaser –I hear you’re the biggest trouble-shooter in this part of the galaxy.”
Mike Colby –That’s what they tell me.
Dr. Barbara Glaser –How’d you like to see some… trouble?

Mike and Sam just so happen to have landed on a remote scientific research center. Met at the airlock by sexy blond Dr Barbara Glaser (June Chadwick) and Dr. Gordon Hauser (Linden Chiles). “You’re a new face around here, we don’t often get new faces” “That’s a truth” replies Barbara with a glint in her eye. Barbara is in need of some new eye candy. Mike is happy. But wait! There’s another beautiful young lady, Tracy Baxter (Dawn Dunlap) and she’s even more of a stunner. Mike has hit the jackpot! Oh boy, little does he know what is installed for him in the next hour.

Dr Gordon informs are two visitors that the research center has been working on a genetic experiment to create a new food source. With a seemingly brilliant breakthrough with Subject 20. Things unfortunately went wrong in a spectacular way! Subject 20 began to mutate and in doing so ripped to shreds all the test animals in their cubicles. It’s a totally shit storm in the laboratory with dead bloodied carcasses scattered around in frenzied carnage. Still, no one really seems that bothered by this! Especially the forever smoking and coughing lead scientist Dr. Cal Timbergen (Fox Harris).

Let the havoc and bloodshed begin with the usual cannon fodder crew ready to be consumed in one way or the other. Gore, splatter, guts and a right goopy mess is thrown across the research center as the mutant transforms into Ripley’s Alien crossed with Audrey 2 from Little Shop Of Horrors.

Mike Colby – “Let’s go bag ourselves a Dingwhopper!”

So what to do whilst this carnage is happening? Well let’s get naked! We get Barbara and Tracy in a shower scene together. There’s time for a montage lovemaking sequence between Barb and Mike that is truly awful and hilarious at the same time. A scientist wanders, thinking in his dressing gown. A sweaty jealous man watches the action on a monitor as he spins a kids toy! Barb checks out Mike’s dodgy scars whilst crew member, Brian Beale (Raymond Oliver) plays a future flute to the bizarre steamy saucy scene. Oh and later to chillout after all the mayhem, Tracy decides to go for a naked sauna whilst Mikes just happens to walk in and now he’s ready for seconds!

Tracy Baxter –You know what? It looks like you could really use the steam bath!
Mike Colby –Well, I had a hard night.
Tracy Baxter –So fair’s fair. Get naked.

A few things.

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover or a movie poster for that matter! That artwork for Forbidden World might be awesome but it hasn’t any resemblance to the film.
  • Directed by Allan Holzman from a story and screenplay from Tim Curnen and Jim Wynorski.
  • Forbidden World is also known as Mutant and Subject 20 at various times.
  • June Chadwick is probably best known as Lydia, one of the invading aliens from the 80s sci-fi series V. If memory serves me well she was 2nd in command to Diana (Jane Badler)

  • Jesse Vint had a part in the superb eco science fiction movie with Bruce Dern and one of my favs, Silent Running (1972)
  • Investigated to see what else the lovely Dawn Dunlap had been in. Oh my! a blast from the past, Barbarian Queen (1985)! I remember renting that turkey on VHS. Sold on the cover. Hey don’t judge, I was a teenager hehe.

  • Forbidden World shares some of the same Corman sets recycled from Battle Beyond the Stars (1980) and Galaxy of Terror (1981)
  • If you’re looking for another naughty science fiction movie with some boobies then Android is good fun.

I’ll leave the plentiful nakedness, the mutant and the rest of the crazy action scenes for you. Yeah of course Forbidden World is bad but hey bad can be really good fun. Go check it out if you can and if you have and fancy dropping a comment, then by all means feel free to do so. Maybe pop in for some tasty technicolor food? Yummy!

Enemy Mine (1985) The Defiant Ones Battle It Out Like Hell In The Pacific

enemy mine (1985) louis gossett jr dennis quaid sci-fi alien buddy poster cover movie

Science fiction often finds the ability to tackle prejudice and racial discrimination through the medium of film. Brother From Another Planet tackled many race and slavery issues, District 9 had the theme of apartheid running throughout. Racial segregation swapped to species segregation. Even the X-Men series touched on prejudice with the oppression of mutants. It runs through many story lines from film to television and on the whole is played out thoughtfully with a deep underlying message. One of my favourite genres that tackles racist behaviour has been with the classic buddy movie trope. Like Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis battling it out in 1958s The Defiant Ones but lets flip it into space or something.

THX 1138 (1971) George Orwell Lucas Science Fiction Dystopian Future

Oh I do love a good dystopian future portrayed in film. THX 1138 is one of my all time favourites. Having caught it sometime in the late 80’s. Randomly switching the telly on after returning from a night on the tiles. Oblivious to its director being that bearded guy who blew my mind with his spectacular space romp as a kid. Just sat, fuzzy headed on the sofa. Transfixed by this white claustrophobic contained city! What the hell was I watching? No internet to search out what this film with the baldies was. Lucky I did know two of the actors. Still it was some years before I got to watch it again and discover it was directed by George Lucas.

The incredible had happened. The mindblowing discovery of a new planet in our solar system! How can that be? Hidden behind the sun, following our own Earth’s orbital pathway, was another celestial body. Always hidden. The year is 2069. With data being processed from a returning Sun Probe, the shock findings throw intrigued and mild panic through the European Space Exploration Council. EUROSEC’s director Jason Webb (Patrick Wymark) mind goes into overdrive. They need to urgently send a manned mission to the mysterious new planet immediately.

Black Moon (1975) Science Fiction Fantasy French Fruit Loop Mind Wibble Wobble

Is this science fiction? It certainly starts that way! Kind of post-apocalyptic. Maybe not following a nuclear war but some other world-wide disaster has probably happened. I got a sense and feeling of Alfonso Cuarón’s 2006 sci-fi thriller Children Of Men to start with. The bleak and the gloom, the underlying air of sadness. Yes that was soon to change and oh, how we all laughed that I could have thought such a thing! Hehe. But first…… Continue reading “Black Moon (1975) Science Fiction Fantasy French Fruit Loop Mind Wibble Wobble”

With his descending spaceship heading straight through Earth’s atmosphere. Our Brother from Another Planet has no choice but to crash land into the Hudson River. Losing half his leg, he emerges shaken alongside Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty. This alien visitor is humanoid in appearance and luckily looks like any regular black guy from Earth. He doesn’t speak our tongue, completely mute, we never get to hear his name. To all that meet him, he is The Brother (Joe Morton).

Android (1982) Video Store Action Heroes 4 x Action Packed Sci-Fi VHS Movie Memories

Android had a tough journey to enter into my temporal lobe. Standing reading the VHS cover, it had excited this young Mikey with a saucy looking space romp. Sure to be boobs, some spaceships and going on the title it had to have an android. Yep I was ready for this. Handing over the empty cassette box to the guy behind the counter I waited for “are you old enough for this?“! A big smile, it didn’t come. To be honest I was quite tall and I’m sure the bored looking guy in the rental shop really didn’t care.

X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes has to be one of my favorite Roger Corman films and one I revisit on many occasions since I first saw it in 1989.  I know the year because it was shown on British TV as part of director Alex Cox presents Moviedrome series that featured so many classic films. Check out my Moviedrome appreciation post I did a while back to see what it was all about or get a nostalgia fix if like me, you fondly remember the series.
