Along with Anger\'s SCORPIO RISING and 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 godfathersAlong with Anger's SCORPIO RISING and 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…
As a bonus, we present two classic featurettes from the Kuchar catalog. THE SECRET OF WENDEL SAMSON stars Pop artist Red Grooms in a dark, surreal psychodrama of sexual desire and the entanglements of intimacy. THE CRAVEN SLUCK tells a torrid tale of adultery and flying saucers.
“…a living legend in the world of experimental film.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“George and Mike Kuchar’s films were my first inspiration. George’s Hold Me While I’m Naked, Mike’s Sins Of The Fleshapoids – these were the pivotal films of my youth, bigger influences than Warhol, Kenneth Anger, even The Wizard of Oz.” – Filmmaker John Waters
