Mick Garris on

Flesh Gordon

Released 1974
Distributor Mammoth Films

Only the anything-goes era of the 1970s could have produced this porno spoof of the ’30s Buster Crabbe serials. Obviously made on a shoestring, but the special fx are surprisingly clever–the people who made this clearly love the originals. It’s odd to see legit actor John Hoyt among the veteran porn cast.
