Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983)


Oh hi,

This week on Filmsack we jump our space jalopy into the future past of the 22nd century by sling shotting back into the 80s to watch some movie that looks and sounds like it was  made for TV but for some brainworks beyond my comprehension ended up in the theater…in 3d! Which we didn’t watch that version because apparently you can’t which is fine because I don’t need that. Because, I already had to sand blast my eyes like Vin Diesel in Pitch Black. You can’t unsee some this crap.

Anywho, What movie am I talking about? Spacehunter: Adventures in the Friend Zone. Despite eventually  landing top billing on subsequent releases of this film on VHS,DVD and BluRay (what no laserdisc)  Molly Ringwald can’t seem to get the womanly attention she needs from Swashbuckler lead Peter Strauss. In fact….no one in this movie can get the loving they want or need…it’s probably pretty generous to think that anyone in this movie deserves even the friend zone…so perhaps the title of Forbidden Zone is more accurate. I stand corrected.

Hey what’s that over there….Is that the Molotov kids.

We represent the Molo-tov kids,
The Molo-tov kids,
The Molo-tov kids

And in the name of the Molo-tov kids,
We wish to welcome you to Night-Mare-Land.
Tra la la la la la la

Hey, Don’t skiz my intro you skrotties.

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983) – Like fly shit on a window. Wait, It’s not blowing off. Emergency Windshield Wiper Fluid Procedure Number 1. Nope. Again! That’s just making it worse! We have blood loss here. Again. Again.


Very Superman opening

Everything is going to be ok. Run.

E-Type…Earth Type.

These effects are not spectacular.

Those crash helmets are pretty sweet.

This earth type planet is no good.

Is that the voice of Harold Ramis  over the space comm?

Emergency Repair Procedure Number 1.

3 thousand mega credits. What a reward.

This movie has more 70s TV SciFi than I would have suspected. This totally looks like late 70s TV Scifi…yep.

We’re not going to ware Chalmers.

Mad Max on an alien planet.

ahhh…of course. Powered Glider Hook Nabbing Vultures.

Grandman….We have blood loss here.

Chalmers was a bot! Initiating self destruct. Face melting underway. Gynoid…Fembot

Worse case scenario…climbing on an alien dirt structure that collapses and you end up face to face with a decomposed body.

…You better not skiz my home…you skrotting Earth-Bag….So Bone out.

Scavs or Zoners…

Overdog is put off by scars….I bet he is covered in scars.

Uh oh…The Chemist is going to give them some mood enhancer.

What does Molly Ringwald smell like? She must stank

What kind of space adventurer keeps soap on his belt?

This whole forcing Molly Ringwald to bathe is weird.

haha…Ernie Hudson. Wolff and Washington have a past.

I can handle the brain-works for both of us.

Like fly shit on a window

Those Big Baby Bat Things are the scariest thing I have ever seen.

death by water snu snu

We are the Molotov Kids. The Molotov Kids. The Molotov Kids.

Burning man.

Overdog is a cyborg dog.

The Maze is not good. It’s like the worst Merican Ninja Warrior.

“Chemist…prepare the fusion tube.”
