This morning I was doing some research on a possible MAN-UP MONDAYS candidate and I came across some sci-fi film I’ve never heard of…Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe!
“What’s it about?” I wondered the same thing and found a plot synopsis at the good ‘ol Wiki!
“The film revolves around the conflict of Abraxas (Jesse Ventura) and Secundus (Sven-Ole Thorsen), two intergalactic police officers, so-called Finders, of an alien race from a planet called Sargacia. Their race is physically similar to humans but with an incredible lifespan; Abraxas himself has been a Finder for at least nine thousand years. Each Finder is equipped with an Answer Box (a device similar to a Mother Box), which serves as a long-distance communicator and scanner, and can detect any object from a distance based on the object’s vibration. Furthermore, when running the test for the Anti-Life Equation, the subject of the scanning will discorporate if he/she does not contain the equation.”
Say what? Answer box? Anti-Life Equation? It leaves me wondering how many more people can rip off Jack Kirby? It also leaves me wondering if there are any scenes of this possibly “so good it’s bad” movie on YouTube?
The answer is, Yes.
So here’s a fan made trailer:
Oh, and this movie also used “Strong As I Am” by THE PRIME MOVERS…which you totally remember from Michael Mann’s MANHUNTER!
Well…that looks…uh…interesting? I wonder what happens next? Maybe some gratuitous slow motion face punching?
Well…back to reality…gotta’ find that special man for tomorrow’s post.
