Galaxy of Terror (1981)
Last night I skipped blogging to go with the family to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While I was not a huge fan of the first flick, I was more impressed with this one. In fact, not only am I excited to see the final installments of the series, I am glad that the daughters have both read the books and watched the movie. This series is extremely relevant to the fundamentals of Agenda 21 and the building tyrannical Police State evolving under this lawless regime. This is a perfect snapshot at what will happen to our society if things do not change in Washington D.C. However, that is not what I am reviewing today, that movie is the 1981 Sci-Fi / Horror flick Galaxy of Terror.
Plot/ 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.
This is by no means a great movie, but it is one of my guilty pleasures. It has everything that made Roger Corman schlock flicks awesome. It is outrageous and totally unbelievable, it is graphic and sleazy, and it has just enough of a storyline to be interesting. The acting (by an awesome cast Sid Haig, Robert Englund and more) is uneven, but that works in this type of flick. Even the effects, which are actually above B-Grade movie, are pretty solid considering the era. In the end, this Corman entry is one that should be seen. Yes, it is far from perfect and some of the scenes may turn some people off, but who cares. If you love B-Grade Sci-Fi / Horror, give this one a shot.
