Now, The Good: actually, it does get worse than this, in that this movie is one of those classics that is so bad, it cycles back around to become wonderful. I'm a fan of bad movies -- not an indiscriminate fan, but when a bad movie has all the right elements, I can swoon big-time -- and man, I regard this movie as the best of the worst. Literally, "Fire Maidens of Outer Space" is my all-time favorite bad movie. This is the movie that got me into bad movies, in fact. I vividly remember that night, back in 1987, watching "Fire Maidens of Outer Space" on late-night TV as a teenager, alone in the dark and laughing myself completely silly. I regard myself as a minor scholar of this movie (what can I say, I'm attracted to obscurities), and I like this movie so much, I not only own an original half-sheet (22x28") poster for it, but given that this movie hasn't had a proper home-video release in 30 years or more (with the last being a crap-o-vision transfer on VHS), I had even seriously considered investing some personal time and money into starting up a concern with the sole mission of obtaining the rights and an original print, and creating and marketing a proper home-video release. So Olive Films saved me the effort. And this is a great transfer, all things considered. A truly proper home-video release. Clear, crisp -- a few scratches and pops here and there, but the prints for this film are almost 60 years old, and of all the sources that have crossed my path, I've never seen "Fire Maidens" look half as good as this. Bravo.Read more ›
All the Fire Maidens are are drop-dead gorgeous.
Most of the story takes place on the 13th moon of Jupiter. The woman all seem to range between 21 and 25 years old, are very beautiful, and wear minimal clothing, (and are looking for mates). So basically, it's paradise for your average American male.
Also on the 13th moon of Jupiter is one old codger. Do what the astronauts do, and ignore him.
So, if you like old science fiction and beautiful women this is your movie. Best seen at the drive-in of course, but otherwise watch it at home and make your own popcorn.
So, you either like this sort of thing, you don't, or you like to make fun of it. But whatever your reasons, if the film appeals to you, you'll be glad to know that Olive Films has done a fine job of bringing it home. I haven't done a back-to-back comparison with my Sinister copy, but this release claims to be the "uncut, 80 minute" version. If anyone knows what's different about it, I'd appreciate you letting me know in the comments section. After all, no one should be expected to watch this turkey two times in a row :-)
Also typical of Olive Films, this DVD is a bare-bones release. All you get are chapter stops. It's a shame, because as I also pointed out in my review of Olive's ...Read more ›
