Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity (1987)

How bad does acting need to be before it gets accused of no longer meeting the minimum requirements of the definition? The answer is subjective, of course, but Slave Girls would make a good case study in that department.
It's pure trash. However, despite the attempt at philosophising the hunter/predator relationship, it probably set out to be, so perhaps its inclusion is an unfair one. If you're drawn to its cheesy charms then it hit its target.
It's one of many films from the 80s VHS boom that had a title better than the actual content, but they were a welcome challenge to the dominance of Hollywood, nonetheless, and I hope their legacy continues to speak to those that understand the even greater need for such challenges these days.
