Chosen One of the Day: Queen Ylanna from Queen of Outer Space

By Rebecca Pahle
Queen of Outer Space

Look the poster for Queen from Outer Space right in its facehole and tell me you don’t want to see this movie. It features SYFY FANGRRLS favorite subjects:




Is that Zsa Zsa Gabor? Is she wearing a cape? IN SPAAAAAACE? Yes. It's true.

Unfortunately, Queen of Outer Space, like many sci-fi pulp films of the '50s and '60s, is unable to live up to the awesome potential of its poster. But there's one component of this film that does live up to hype, and it is this bitch right here:

Queen Ylanna hates men. She HAAAATES them. This is because living on Venus used to be all fun and fancy free, but then men (#ALLMEN) caused all sorts of wars (#ALLWARS) that, among other things, left Ylanna disfigured. So now she runs sh*t herself, keeping the few remaining men on a prison colony. Yes, yes, Queen Ylanna is technically the villain in this movie. But, given what we know in year of SATAN AND HELLFIRE 2019, maybe the idea that men should be kicked off to the moon somewhere so women can rule things for a bit... is good?

I know the Democratic primary is just now starting to really rev up, and a lot will happen between now and when it's time to vote for a candidate. But I can confidently say that my preferred ticket is MISANDRIST SPACE LADIES. Queen Ylanna/Nyahh, The Devil Girl from Mars 2020.
