Grab your friends and have a riot with this underground cult hit! Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Trivia

David Winters had to drop out early in filming, after a close relative died. Neal Sundstrom directed most of the film. However, Sundstrom was not pleased with the end result, blaming a lack of care and attention in pre-production, and refused to be credited as anything more than co-director. Winters was equally unhappy with the film, and attempted to have his name replaced with Alan Smithee, but his contract would not allow it. See more »

Goofs

Just before colliding with Kalgan's Enforcer car, Ryder lets out a scream and jumps from his own car. After the scream, the shot lingers on him a few seconds too long, so that the viewer can see Reb Brown compose himself in preparation for the stunt. See more »

One of the best bad films ever made
14 January 2006 | by Team_RocketSee all my reviews

This film is beautiful for so many reasons, and yet many do not see that beauty. You have to look past the bad acting, bad special effects, and cheesy dialogue to see it...But trust me, it's there. It's a prime example of a film that's so bad it's good, grab some popcorn and some friends and get ready for a night of side splitting fun. No you're not going on a killing spree, this film has a bad movie appeal that will leave a smile on your face afterwards instead of regret...Regret you might feel after spending hard earned money on something like Kicking & Screaming or whatever Will Ferrell's latest comedy vehicle is.

Space Mutiny is a bad film you won't regret, watch it for what it is. Sure, one could sit back and take a serious look at this film and dissect it critically, but I for one like to enjoy a film for what it is...And this film my friends, is pure "so bad it's good" gold. Melt it down in your critic's cauldron if you must, but why waste time taking a critical approach to something that was way ahead of it's time and reached new heights in bad movie history. It's one of the best of the worst in my book and deserves a spot on anyone's movie shelf who enjoys bad acting, bad dialogue, and bad films in general.
