Lexx - I Worship His Shadow [VHS]

Lexx - I Worship His Shadow [VHS] Lowest new price: $8.95
Lowest used price: $1.99

The sexy cult cable series Lexx began life in 1997 as a set of four Canadian-German TV coproductions, sci-fi farces about a trio of fugitives in a living spaceship on the run in an unknown galaxy. It's like a twisted parody of the playful but far more serious space opera Farscape, though Lexx actually was produced first. Sad sack Stanley Tweedle (Brian Downey), a bumbling engineer with bad judgment and worse luck, is the pilot of the most powerful weapon in the galaxy thanks to a fluke accident. And his motley crew includes platinum-blond bombshell Zev Bellringer (Eva Habermann), whose DNA has been altered to contain that of a bloodthirsty cluster lizard; former assassin Kai (Michael McManus), a humorless, dead warrior kept animated for 2,000 years with artificial blood; and a decapitated, lovesick robot head named 790.

The colorful "I Worship His Shadow," the satirical debut of the series, is an absurd fantasy about a rebellion (led by guest star Barry Bostwick, who gamely keeps a straight face while running around dressed in psychedelic Arabian Nights duds) against His Shadow, an immortal emperor who renders his subjects into raw protein for his invincible insectlike spaceship, the Lexx. Directed at a fast and furious pace and crammed with cool CGI effects that make up in ambition and wild design what they lack in polish, it's the show's finest hour and a half, a crazy adventure with a wacky sense of humor. It's obvious the show's producers lavished their care and attention on this pilot, for the balance of the miniseries never again reaches this level of invention and fun, though in moments it comes close. --Sean Axmaker

Finally, parents will have something to pop in the VCR when their hopelessly addicted tots ask for a hit of the blue dog during one of the many hours it's not actually playing on television. This 50-minute video contains two segments that touch on several traditional tales, but focus on "The Three Little Pigs" and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." There's a little Elvis humor for the adults, but most of the jokes are aimed squarely at the pre-K set, who are asked to help our rugby-shirted friend Steve discover his evasive cartoon dog's favorite stories. With any luck, the video should buy you more than 50 minutes of peace as your child is likely to be inspired to engage his or her dog in porridge-portion comparisons or corner the cat behind the washing machine for a rousing game of "Little pig, little pig, let me come in." --Kimberly Heinrichs

Before Creepshow and the Tales from the Crypt TV show became popular, this little-known film was the original adaptation of the famous E.C. horror comic. While visiting an underground catacomb, five tourists (including Joan Collins) venture off into a secret room where a mysterious, robed man shows them the horrible fates that will befall them should they decide to go through with the dastardly deeds they have secretly planned. These include killing a spouse, running away with a mistress, driving a neighbor out of town, using a mysterious idol to fulfill greedy wishes, and abusing the inhabitants of a home for the blind. While not as stylishly spooky as the E.C. adaptations that followed it, this particular compendium has its creepy moments and features a fine cast, including Collins, Peter Cushing, and Patrick Magee, who many may remember as the crippled author in A Clockwork Orange. --Bryan Reesman
