      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Most of the laughs in it...appear to be unintentional. Dec 2, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It belongs on a list for worst film ever made. Rated: C- Jun 6, 2014 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Dorky sci-fi glitz starring Zsa Zsa. Rated: 2/5 Mar 20, 2008 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a '50s sci-fi effort that would certainly be right at home within Ed Wood's oeuvre. Rated: 2/4 Jul 10, 2007 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com It's everything "camp" is meant to be, really, over-the-top in a blindingly goofy you-can't-be-serious manner. Rated: 1/5 Jul 9, 2007 Full Review James O'Ehley Sci-Fi Movie Page At least the movie has its tongue in its cheek and there are some light humorous touches - 1950's style, that is.

      Aldo G Corny, hornbill fun. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member A romp in the 50s when men were men and women liked it that way. Sure, it's camp but the actors took it seriously including a very charming Gabor performance. Pure, silly fun. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review steven s Good choice if you are looking for a bad movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review dave s Well, the sets are very colorful and the Venusians are certainly a treat for the eyes, but that's about all that Queen of Outer Space has to offer. Four spacemen crash land their rocket on what turns out to be Venus (surprisingly, it has the same atmosphere as Earth) and are set upon by the natives, who all happen to be women dressed in miniskirts and cleavage-revealing tops, gussied up in eyeshadow and lipstick. From there, things start to get weird, topped off by a memorable performance from Zsa Zsa Gabor, whose character has somehow developed a Hungarian accent. Pretty much everything about Queen of Outer Space is flagrantly dumb, but at least it's good for a few laughs. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Doesn't Zsa Zsa Gabor as star and "Queen" tell the whole story? The special effects are literally cartoons. We especially enjoyed the powder blue space ship interior and matching powder blue polyester "space suits" worn by the astronauts and military brass. Venus looks like Gilligan's Island. The Venutians look like casting couch cuties, circa 1955. It's always fun to sass the TV. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Breaking news from space! The bad: An intrepid captain and his men have landed on a planet where males are outlawed. The good: Some women there are eager to break the law! Queen of Outer Space is a milestone of movie camp. Eric Fleming plays the granite-jawed leader who shares with his crew the crime of maleness. That's just the start of their troubles. The man-hating Venusian Queen (Laurie Mitchell) aims to destroy Earth once a Beta Disintegrator is operational. But a gossamer-gowned scientist (Zsa Zsa Gabor) and her curvy cohorts eye the men, and they like what they see. This bijou bauble has sets, costumes and effects from Flight to Mars, Forbidden Planet and World Without End. Have fun spotting them.
