Everything from the set design to the gore effects just clicked, I really adored the idea of people dying by their own fears, the anamotronic monsters looked fabulous, and the characters were a little over decent. But I do not feel that this is Corman's best alien rip-off, it doesn't even feel like one.
Plot: A group of ten explores travel on a spaceship called "Quest" to a planet called "Morganthus" to find some hopeful survivors of a crashed spaceship. Soon however they find out that their own fears appear to be coming to life and killing them off one by one in gruesome fashion! Can anyone stay calm and try to find a way out of this personal living hell?!
Review: Galaxy of terror is one of those cult classics that everyone seems to enjoy everything about it from the great gore effects and set design to the disturbing maggot rape scene. This film definitley has some memoriable, grisly kills and it has earned itself the name Cult Classic but I for one did not enjoy it as much as "Forbidden World".... Don't get me wrong I still dug the hell out of Galaxy of Terror. I felt that the acting was very good considering the time this movie was made and the suspense was there but when the action really came it was more intense than entertaining which isn't really a bad thing. The best thing about this movie was that it was so original, it wasn't just an alien-type movie, there wasn't any real aliens in it anyway, the monsters were just creatures made out of the characters' sub-concious! This movie is basiaclly awesome in every self right, it could've been made into an hour and a half or two hour bore-fest but the deaths kept of piling up kill after kill and the terror was on full force!
Acting: We get two awesome horror icons (Robert Englund and Sid Haig), plus some others which who I don't really know much about if anything at all!
Gore: we get a partial cranium rip, an exploded head, a fried body, a severed arm, a groovy slit wrist, a parcel disembowlment, a bunch of slimey and grotesque monsters and more! This department was a treat!
Bottom Line: With it's $700,000 budget it was a very sucsessful picture creating tons of cult respect and a fan base! I've only watched it once but I am 100% positive that I will watch it again with all of it's superb special features!
Suggested MPAA: Rated R for horror violence and gore, and for a rape including nudity
Is it worth the Buy on a scale of 1-10: 10
For the Movie itself on a scale of 1-5: 4
