GALAXY OF TERROR (R)
NEW WORLD PICTURES (1981)

Starring: Edward Albert, Erin Moran, Ray Walston, Sid Haig, Robert Englund & more.

GALAXY OF TERROR is one of those Roger Corman gems from the early 80's. If your a fan of
Corman's work, then most likely you'll enjoy this Sci-Fi, Fantasy Horror flick. The film follows a
space crew on a mission to rescue another crew of the space craft Remus. Once they arrive at the craft
they find that the crew has been gruesomely slaughtered. They try to figure out what happened to them
and find themselves facing their own inner fears. There is a pyramid on the planet they have landed
and when all the crew decide to enter things turn from bad to worst. Each crew members is put face to
face with their own worst nightmares. The film was a hidden classic of it's time and helped spin off a
lot of the Sci-Fi Horror &
ALIEN rip off films that followed. When viewing this film now it's kind of
laughable and cheesy all through out, but it's typical Roger Corman styled. There are some pretty
intense parts and this would be a killer flick to be remade today with the technology that available now.
The film also has Horror favorites Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger from
NIGHTMARE ON ELM
STREET
) & Sid Haig (Captain Sapulding from HOUSE OF A 1000 CORPSE & THE DEVIL'S
REJECTS
). Erin Moran, who played Joanie on HAPPY DAYS is in it as well. If you like low budget
cheesy Sci-Fi Horror, especially stuff that the Sy-Fy Channel puts out (which Roger Corman has done
work for) then your gonna love this flick.
