Movie Info

An android rises up against its decadent human masters in this camp classic from underground filmmaker Mike Kuchar. As explained in voice-over, a nuclear war nearly destroys civilization, but humankind re-emerges into an age of indolence. Their every whim catered to by robot servants known as fleshapoids, the citizens of the future spend their time luxuriating in the sensual pleasures of food, sex, and sleep. One day, however, a fleshapoid named Xar (Bob Cowan) experiences the unquenchable desire to do a little luxuriating of his own. Rising up against his owner (Gina Zuckerman), Xar teams up with fellow android Melenka (Maren Thomas). Soon, the robot Bonnie and Clyde are battling for their freedom against the tyranny of scantily clad overlords Prince Gianbeno (George Kuchar) and Princess Vivianna (Donna Kerness). Director Mike Kuchar and his twin brother, star George Kuchar, began making 8 mm films together as teens in the early '50s. Sins of the Fleshapoids marks Mike Kuchar's first foray as a solo director. Poorly distributed and rarely seen outside of film festivals until its 2005 DVD release, Sins of the Fleshapoids nonetheless influenced a generation of later filmmakers, including David Cronenberg and John Waters.

½

Somewhat funny low budget sci-fi movie. It's enjoyable towards the end, but there are a lot of scenes, especially in the beginning, that are confusing and boring. Overall, it's not that bad, but I wouldn't recommend it.

A very interesting and "campy" movie. Although you can literally tell they filmed the whole thing in their apartment, the story is interesting enough, and it's got some humor.

High camp, dime store costumes and a robot wanting to engage in carnal lust makes this film from Mike Kuchar (one half of the Kuchar twins) a must see for underground film fans or fans of bizarre cinema in general.
