Default StarCrash

Has anyone ever seen this movie?

I saw the DVD for sale in my local HMV and didn't actually buy it but after reading the back cover about Caroline Munro and 'sexy space gals' on her journey to save the Galaxy from eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevilllllllllllllllll lll!! I had to look it up. I might just have to buy it now.................

Made in 1979 (if you can at all believe it!!) the trailer is an absolute hoot! I lost count of how many flicks they seemed to be ripping off in it! Plus, it has The Hoff in it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzfuNSpP0RA

Seriously, this is the description on the back -

''The entire galaxy is in peril and infamous space-smuggler Stella Star, the greatest star pilot ever to command a vessel, is its only hope. The evil Count Zartharn from the League of the Dark Worlds has constructed a weapon of limitless power capable of destroying anything in its path. Stella Star and her loyal crew must navigate the darkest corners of the solar system to find the Count's hideout and bring his reign of terror to an end.

Originally released the year after Star Wars and with a Barbarella budget, this piece of cult cinema is a sexy space classic and a must see for all sci-fi fans. With the addition of a John Barry soundtrack that makes this DVD a collectable classic.''

Yeah, cause the John Barry soundtrack makes the difference! Lol!!!

Yeah, I've seen part of it, and indeed it rips off just about any sci-fi cult movie that came before...especially Star Wars.

The visual effects in Star Crash make "Battle Beyond the Stars" look like Oscar quality material. And the story (what I've seen of it) is plenty laughable.

I'd watch it only as I would an impending train wreck. LOL!

With that 'I couldn't stop watching even if I tried' kinda way!

Cool

Wow, I haven't seen "Star Crash" in decades...

I remember when Caroline Munro was the Queen of schlock films...

That's a new theory on me.

Although I once heard of a phenomenon (quite possibly fictional) about living in a slightly higher altitude on the development of certain male aspects.

You should check out Forbidden World, a Roger Corman Alien rip-off masterpiece!!

Plenty of breasts, gore, and bad acting for everyone to enjoy! :P
