But the Science Fiction aspect was what I noticed the most when I watched it this weekend. The alien doctor creates life, turns people to stone and then revives them and commands them to his will, and his former alien servants rebel, take command, shoot him down with a laser beam of pure anti-matter, and beam the entire castle back to their home planet.
Take out all the drag and we have just another science fiction film. But the cross-dressing, the time warp, and the dramatic musical numbers definitely make it more fun.
Here's the original TRAILER. Enjoy!
