The Girl From Starship Venus

2069… A Space Sexploration! In the softcore sci-fi satire The Girl From Starship Venus, a Venusian spacecraft lands in London and its alien visitor transforms into a beautifully buxom human female, resulting in a swinging string of hilariously sexy encounters in porn shops, massage parlors and strip joints in a campy quest to investigate the inhabitants of our strange planet. German cheesecake model Monika Ringwald stars, drawing big laughs from deadpan comedy in a film that Quentin Tarantino calls one of the top 20 grindhouse classics!

“Even as a kid I knew I would get things from The Girl From Starship Venus that I wouldn’t get from the Hollywood films” – Quentin Tarantino

Flesh Gordon (Director In Person!)

Just added! Flesh Gordon director Howard Ziehm will join us IN PERSON, schedule permitting, to introduce his film!

Porn pioneers Bill Osco, Howard Ziehm and Michael Benveniste conjured this soft sexploitation spoof, with Flesh (Jason Williams) and Dale Ardor (Suzanne Fields) the only survivors of a plane incapacitated by sex rays from space. Encountering Dr. Jerkoff (Joseph Hudgins), who has already built a phallic spaceship to travel to the planet Porno to investigate, the three blast off to the domain of galactic emperor, Wang the Perverted (William Hunt). Despite tortures and encounters with odd monsters such as Penisauruses, Flesh escapes, aided by libidinous Queen Amora. Wang shoots down their ship, but Flesh survives to reunite with Dr. Jerkoff. Wang’s intentions of marrying Dale are foiled when Nellie (Candy Samples), chief of the Amazonian lesbians kidnaps her. Flesh and Jerkoff rescue Dale, aided by gay Prince Precious and his forest tribe. When Jerkoff confronts Wang with a new weapon, Wang brings to life the giant idol, the Great God Porno to prevent his prey from escaping.

“A goofy, corny, sexually outrageous tribute… complete with up-to-date special effects, kitschy costumes, and godawful acting… a huge amount of fun” – Mondo Digital
