Spaceship, The Movie
Sometimes I wish I could selectively purge my memory. Something somebody said the other day reminded me of the movie Spaceship, which was a very bad spoof of Alien and B-monster movies in general. The only thing I remembered about the movie was the bad acting, bad effects, and rolling over with laughter as the monster sang the song "I Want To Eat Your Face." In fact, I didn't even remember the name of the movie. I searched Google for the song title (which was the only concrete thing I could remember about the movie) and got 30 hits. If you like really bad B movies, definitely check this one out if you see it in the bargain bin or at Blockbuster. Even if you can't stand watching the movie, fast-forward to the monster's sing and dance number. I thought it was a real gut-buster.
The movie was intended to be a comedy, but not the horrible Airplane knock-off that it turned out to be. Read the comments by Bruce Kimmel, the film's writer and director, on his web site. Two entries: here andhere.
