A nerve gas leak in Alaska kills everyone over the age of 25 in this hopelessly surreal comedy from cult director Roger Corman.
The expected Utopia doesn’t materialise, however, in a freewheeling romp that features Hell’s Angels, Che Guevara, Edgar Allan Poe and Martin Luther King.
Talia Shire, Ben Vereen, Bud Cort and Cindy Williams all make appearances in this time-capsule oddity, but Corman takes aim at too many hip targets and doesn’t hit any of them successfully.
After the film was heavily cut by his usual distributors, AIP, Corman set up his own production company, New World.
