The fact that you can attend a 70mm screening of this super sleazy, surreal sci-fi flick should be worth the price of admission alone. But more than that, you won’t believe how oddly hypnotic and enjoyable this film actually plays out. Astronauts discover a race of humanoid beings inside the core of Haley’s Comet and decide to bring the three naked ones back to planet Earth. Understandably, they wreck havoc on everyone and everything. Luckily, the female humanoid (Mathilda May) spends the entire film in the nude. Let me be frank, you will never in your lifetime get another chance to watch this obscure film in 70mm. WARNING: Gratuitous nudity and swirly, psychedelic space effects.
