In space, no one can hear you giggle. Just as well, since this sci-fi reworking of Frankenstein is so cheap, it's hilarious. Klaus Kinski plays a horny old scientist on an isolated space station who's building a female android to keep him company during those long, tedious orbits. But things are complicated by the jealous response of his present 'droid, Max 404 (Don Keith Opper), and the arrival of three escaped convicts.

Filmed on leftover sets from Battle Beyond The Stars, this 1982 quickie from Roger Corman's studio is dumb-but-fun space trash with ray guns from Toys 'R' Us, jerky sliding doors and Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy-style FX. So camp it ought to come with complimentary tentpoles.
