Poster art for THE HUMANOID (1979)
I would never try to claim that this film is 'good' - in fact its pretty terrible on every level- but I really got a kick out of it. As cheap STAR WARS rip-offs go its one of the best. The plot is ridiculous, the characters cardboard, the dialog awful (even worse than SW) and the acting flat but there is a fun energy to the thing that is appealing. In a way its a perfect silly mindless rainy afternoon film that requires no thinking and indeed punishes it. Just let it wash over you and smlie at the gorgeous Corrine Clery!
