As a lone spaceship proceeds on its long voyage across space, the crew are surprised to encounter a strange pyramid form. Surprise turns to horror as one by one, they discover that their darkest nightmares are all starting to become real. The pyramid has to be behind it all somehow, but how can they save themselves from its influence?
Yes, there's interspecies worm rape in this movie, but it's HETEROSEXUAL interspecies worm rape, just like God intended!
After watching Under the Skin last night I had a very hard time settling into a movie afterwards. I started watching Rockula but after 16 minutes I had to just shut it off (it's so awful and ridiculous). After that I let Richard talk me into possibly watching Manborg and after about 2 minutes I demanded he put a stop to the movie and NEVER mention it again because I am NOT interested. Finally Galaxy of Terror is brought up and we're able to just barely be content with what we have chosen in order to finish it.
Galaxy of Terror is an early '80s Roger Corman produced cash-in on the success of late 1970s science fiction-horror films. For a…
A simple vista, un exploited de Alien producido con cuatro perras y un puñado de actores que, en algunos casos, ya son leyenda.
Pero La galaxia del terror también es la versión Corman de Las montañas de la locura, una montaña rusa de sobreactuación, muerte y sinsentidos deliciosos, cubierta por capas y capas de horror y ciencia ficción.
Nosotros teníamos estas buenísimas malas películas y vosotros seguís riendo las gracias a los tornados con tiburones.
La honestidad era esto, idiotas.
Aside from its low-level special effects, micro-thin budget, and storyline that borrows heavily from "Alien," "Galaxy of Terror" is an almost-passable science fiction thriller. Prodced by Roger Corman's New World unit, the film wears its bad movie cred. and exploitative charms proudly. Ironically, it's when the film tries to inject an original sublot into the unoriginal proceedings during its climax that "Galaxy of Terror" loses its sense of fun and any redeeming qualities.
The story might be a rundown of the old "Your own fear is what kills you" but it is so way out there designwise that I still consider this a minor masterpiece.
"There's no horror here we don't create ourselves." – Cabren (Edward Albert)
Despite the 2.5 stars, I did grudgingly enjoy much of this lurid low-budget, early 80's cluster-fi. With it's oddball cast and their off-the-wall performances, James Cameron's proto-Aliens touches in set design and maggot wrangling, and ridiculous death scenes, it's a perfectly cromulent good-bad schlock-fest. Of course one can't be too fussy when slumming in Corman-ville, so there's no point in complaining if you find a large worm in your rape scene.
A prime candidate for home editions of MST2K, as long as you issue appropriate trigger warnings to your guests.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
If Battle Beyond the Stars is the Coleman Studios' Star Wars, then Galaxy of Terror is its Alien. And for a while, that's exactly what it feels like - right up until a dude punches his own arm off. THEN it goes bonkers, including such delightful visuals as giant rape-maggots, 8-bit PTSD, and just, just so many burning corpses, you guys.
The gore effects are top notch, and the mystery intrigues. An absolute B-movie classic.
Look at this cover. LOOK AT IT!
The movie has nothing to do with this. It's actually a Corman Alien ripoff because why not. But it's also a movie that cast Robert Englund and Sid Haig, before they'd be known as Freddy Kruger and Captain Spaulding (but after Haig was known for a ton of movies like Spider-Baby).
The result... ain't so bad! Is it on par with Alien? Absolutely not. The effects are cheesy and reek of bad 70s Sci-Fi. The crew is mostly forgettable and the plot is... Well, it makes no sense until it does. And when it does, it's ridiculously simple. Still, it's entertaining.
Watching Sid Haig throw crystal shuriken is priceless. "I live and I…
Just awful, so so awful!!
yeah this wasn't great.
It's like alien meets the thing but boring
Poop but great as it feels very it's era. Good to see a young Robert englund in it. Chesy monsters and props good for a random laugh

A sort of Alien rip-off, that could have been better, as they must have spent a bit on it, but not loads. Some of the sets are pretty good, but I didn't really get the ending as I had lost interest by that point.
What a cult film this is. It's weird and gory and unintentionally hilarious in spots. This isn't great by any means but it was fun getting to see it with a crowd on the big screen. DCP
