A big collection of films that might be considered as strange, mindfucking, surreal and weird. Sorted by year. Suggestions are…
Galaxy of Terror
ALIEN was the beginning ... Hell Has Just Been Relocated!
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.
"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.
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.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I really enjoyed the sfx in this movie and there's some cool-ass deaths as well. The actual story is pretty out there and the movie really drags at times but there's definitely enough good stuff, including the cast, to make this an enjoyable flick. Corman and co. sure do love to rip off Alien though don't they?
Galaxy of Terror has parts of low budget brilliance but as a whole it's mostly just dull and pretty forgettable.
Fantastic production design makes this film fascinating to watch. Hats off to James Cameron, who was actually one of the production designers. Produced by Roger Corman so you know what you are getting yourself into. Best line:
"Are you afraid?"
"I'm too scared to be."
In other words, yes you have to see this movie!
unfortunately, pretty dull and forgettable.
A collection of once famous and never were famous stars, in a $20 "Alien" ripoff? Count us in! Probably most infamous for its "maggot" scene, this 'Galaxy of Terror is a lot of things, but boring (as well tasteful, thoughtful, intelligent, or well made) is not one of them...
in many ways this has got a lot going for it: some nice special effects work, some decent acting, some creepy direction and a nicely downbeat ending. but it's also very muddled and you never really care for any of the characters - which in something like this, which is all about watching those characters get knocked off one by one - is something of a problem...
What a great film. Sure, it's a low-budget 80s sci-fi horror but they use what they have and make it work. It had energy and real atmosphere that carried it along at a good pace and helped shroud the faults of the film to a point where you didn't care and just went with it.
One of the better Corman productions !
