I think the beastie boys used this as a inspiration for their "body movin'" vid.
I love this movie! Just got the poster for Christmas. Also, Mike Patton's cover of "Deep Deep Down" on Mondo Cane is fantastic. I highly reccomend a triple feature of Batman: The Movie, Danger: Diabolik and Star Crash. You won't be let down!
Never heard of this before but will definately check it out!
