Trivia

A few years after the release of the film, Farrah Fawcett was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) in which Mr. Carson casually poked fun at Fawcett's movie choices. "I remember you did a picture - I think it was called 'Saturn 3'." The audience laughed a bit as Fawcett squirmed, answering, "Originally they had a very good script, it was called 'The Helper', and it was a lot different from what we ended up shooting." See more »

A decent sci-fi pic from ITC.
7 January 2004 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews



A group of space researchers land on a asteroid on one of Saturn's rings, they research in their own biological lab with the help of an android who seems to have a mind of it's own and wants to kill.

Suspenseful at times but falls flat in some areas. The cast like Farrah Fawchett, Harvey Keitel, and Kirk Douglas are good, the robot was freak and does offer a couple of gore scenes.

A very much watchable effort from ITC ( the company that brought you "The Dark Crystal", " The Last Unicorn" and "Company of Wolves"), but don't expect this to be a classic like " The Terminator" or "Alien".

5/10.
