Rewatch! There's a "counter-Earth" that's on the opposite side of the sun as the normal Earth, the same gimmick from Stranded in Space, but this one's not Authoritarian Dystopia (movie premise #218) so much as Burroughsian Otherworld Barbarian-Style Sword-and-Sorcery Made Possible Through MacGuffin (premise #245). Our many-man hero Cabot (Cabot? Cabot!) travels there through magic crackerjack prize, along with his unmanly-man professorial colleague, and must thwart the machinations of a slumming Jack Palance. Previously.

It's a really loose version of John Norman's Gor novels, which were themselves rewrites of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Barsoom novels, but with a lot more squicky S&M stuff. Fortunately, that stuff isn't in the movie.

Jack Palance always has the most fun chewing the scenery.

That's probably why he craps bigger than us. All that fiber and roughage.
