Nightmare Fuel / Flash Gordon (1979)

Go To

  • Some of the animation for the monsters, as well as the monsters themselves.
  • The starving, emaciated prisoners in Ming's mines who are explicitly stated to be blind from radiation poisoning. Thun explains that the prisoners last only hours to a few days at best before they go missing, and tells Flash that there are rumors that the slaves too weak to continue working might be taken by the lizard-women who work as guards in the mines to be fattened up and eaten. He also suggests that the food given to the prisoners might be lizard meat, not putting it past Ming to come up with a closed scheme like that. Understandably, Flash is horrified by all this, doubting that even Ming could be so evil.
