Nathan Rabin's Year of Flops Case File #79

a disco fantasia on biblical themes...It’s the story of Adam and Eve reborn as an intergalactic Dionysian sex musical, only much, much weirder.


another brilliant entry in what's probably my fave AV Club feature to date.

I've bumped this up on my netflix queue, but I gotta ask...anyone seen this? Just what am I getting myself into?

Have you ever seen Meet The Feebles, by Peter Jackson? If so, then this can't be any more strange, right?

It's kind of like grotesque fetish porn: once you see it you can't unsee it. It's been years but I remember the silver bodysuit! Oh God, the silver bodysuit!

yes I have.

and, yes, it could be stranger, as the "muppets on acid" shtick was expected.

even reading the write-up, I'm still not quite sure what to expect from The Apple...

Well...
Apparently you can expect silver bodysuits...

So that's always a plus...

As one reviewer put it, "It's like 'Phantom of the Paradise', only gayer and made in Berlin."

Though I think it inspired the far superior "Josie and the Pussycats".

Yeah, "g.ay" doesn't even begin to cover it. I think there's only one movie that's more g.ay, and that would be "Can't Stop the Music." Not even g.ay porn is more g.ay.

EDIT: FUCKING WORD SUBSTITUTIONS!
