Video Vortex: Time of the Apes

Now is the perfect time for a Planet of the Apes knock off...on VHS, no less!

Several of us are in the back row, seats 14-17.  Here's the description from Alamo's site:

Science has never met fiction like this. In 1974, Japan's Tsuburaya Productions (ULTRAMAN) released twenty-six episodes of a TV show called SARU NO GUNDAN. Much like the Turkish "interpretations" of movies like RAMBO and JAWS, SARU NO GUNDAN re-imagined an American blockbuster as something that was more digestible for its native country's culture. In this case, it was PLANET OF THE APES. SARU NO GUNDAN told the coherent story of a time-traveling family who were trapped in a future that was ruled by apes. Fair enough. In 1987, TV producer Sandy Frank discovered SARU NO GUNDAN and said, "Boy, this is great! But it would be even better if I cut all twenty-six episodes into one movie, dubbed the whole thing in my bathroom, and called it TIME OF THE APES!!" And so he did. TIME OF THE APES is an illogical black hole of madness, jam-packed with psychedelic visuals, deranged dubbing, and ape soldiers who drive rainbow-colored hippie vans. The movie reeks of desperation, haste, and recklessness. It has UFOs and a child-ape named "Pepe" who wears corduroys. We're not saying that TIME OF THE APES is better than PLANET OF THE APES. But it probably is. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

    Spectacular. During the entire movie, you could have told me the world was ending and apes had risen to replace man and I would have just said "I don't care!" and skipped off to school in my disturbing little boy shorts.

      If so, cool! If not, that's okay too. I will go anyway...probably around 9:30ish. It's been a rough week so I'll be due for drink before the show!

      I'm going to be totally brain dead after up all night, too. But if Sarah goes, I'll try to meet you two there.

    I've already got two tickets. Row 2 seats 10-11… my usual spot.

      Cool. I believe I'll have Imran and Chelle with me, so we will likely be in the back row. I'll find out tonight.

    It was on MST3K, one of the best episodes in my opinion. Yeah I'll tentatively RSVP "yes".
