Last November I dedicated my ‘Not Available on DVD’ column to the “infamously harebrained but entertaining-as-hell” 1978 Italian Star Wars knockoff Starcrash. It was released on the Orion VHS label in the mid-80′s (and on a cheap label under the title Female Space Invader) but had yet to appear as a domestic DVD release. At the time I wrote “Leave it to the wacky Italians, always quick to exploit a popular trend, to rip off George Lucas’s cash cow resulting in a film so spectacularly cheesy that over 30 years later it has actually aged better than the film it emulates.”. (read the entire column Here) I wrote this half in jest as a way to tweak my Star Wars-worshipping friends, but after watching the new Blu-Ray release from Shout! Factory, I’m starting to think I may have been on to something after all.
