Synopsis
With the male population of Mars on the decline, the future of the red planet rests squarely in the hands of a long-legged alien named Nyah (Patricia Laffan), who's come to Earth -- specifically, the Scottish moors -- in search of virile, able-bodied men. Their mission -- should they choose to accept it -- is to travel to space to propagate the species. Not surprisingly, the Scotsmen's women put up a fight.

Rent Space Mutiny on DVD Space Mutiny
Synopsis
Earning a top spot in the so-bad-it's-good genre with cheesy special effects, tinfoil costumes and a decidedly odd-looking spacecraft, this sci-fi epic tells the story of mutiny among a spaceship crew trying to found a new colony. Cameron Mitchell plays the commander of the ill-fated <i>Southern Sun</i>, and John Phillip Law plays the villain intent upon forcing a landing on the pirate-run planet Corona Borealis in this hysterical cult fave.
