Default Galaxy of Terror (1981)

Old-school 80s sci-fi/horror classic! Produced by Roger Corman, the cast includes Robert Englund, Ray Walston and Sid Haig.

I thought the special effects were pretty good in this. Well done matte paintings and model work. The alien planet and spaceship are eerie and atmospheric. The creature effects are also not bad.

The plot is very similar to Event Horizon.. people facing their fears. It's also like Alien in some aspects.

It has alot of great scenes in it... gore, nudity, etc... Overall, great cheesy fun.



Anyone else appreciate this classic?

I haven't seen this since 1980-something. I was glad to hear its finally coming to DVD soon. The only thing i remember is the scene where a chick gets raped by a giant worm...

It's been out.
Just costs an arm & a leg.

Trust me, I've wanted to get it for ages.

It's been like my 'white whale'.

I bought a bootleg of the Italian release that looks great in 16x9.
It's a gem IMO.
Sid Haig is in it too.

Ms. Morans death scene is AWESOME!
