Cheesy B-Movie Goodness: Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone

Blast off with "Spacehunter" a high-powered adventure starring Peter Strauss as a galactic bounty hunter menaced bya mechanical madman. It is the year 2136 and Wolff (Strauss), while answering a distress signal from Terra Eleven, agrees to rescue three beautiful maidens from the plague-ridden planet. When the women are kidnapped by henchmen of Overdog (Michael Ironside), the wicked half-man/half-machine who rules the planet, Wolff takes off in hot pursuit. As he challenges assorted monsters and mutants, circumstances throw Wolff together with Niki (Molly Ringwald), a spunky waif who agrees to guide him to Overdog's scrap-metal kingdom. Wolff's exploits in the Forbidden Zone are packed with extra-terrestrial thrills, plus special effects guaranteed to dazzle you.

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983) features a young Molly Ringwald batteling an evil Michael Ironside in a adventure that is like something taking out of the Road Warrior handbook. Heck yeah, bring on the popcorn with extra butter, this is definately Cheesy B at its best. The film was originally shot in 3D, before James Cameron made 3D cool.
