DVD Underground: Sins of the Fleshapoids

Sins of the Fleshapoids

Official Description: Along with [Kenneth] Anger‘s Scorpio Rising and [Andy] Warhol‘s Chelsea Girls, Mike Kuchar‘s Sins of the Fleshapoids remains one of the most influential films of the ’60s American Underground. Mike and his brother George (who co-wrote Fleshapoids), were the godfathers of bargain basement cinema, pioneering a hilariously campy, lurid style between Ed Wood exploitation and Douglas Sirk melodrama.

Set a million years in the future, after “The Great War” has scourged the planet, mankind has forsaken science for self-indulgence in all the carnal pleasures afforded by art, food, and lust. Work is left to a race of enslaved androids. One rebellious male robot (Bob Cowan) tires of pampering his lazy masters, and joins the humans in sin. The future never seemed so ridiculous…
