Storyline

When the spaceship Vertigo stops to explore a previously unknown planet, the crew finds an unrecognized dollop of protoplasm and takes it aboard ship to return it to earth for analysis. On board, lifeform expands into an oozing person-eating monster which communicates primarily by means of a Vegas lounge act. The crew is gobbled up one after another until the two surviving crewmembers come up with a plan. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Get on-board for fun.
6 February 2001 | by (Southgate, MI) – See all my reviews

A simple, fun movie. The cast is bright, and great to watch. I have always loved Gerrit Graham, and he is really funny here. Patrick Macnee is very good as the crazy doctor, who wants us to love, and accept this creature. Of course, Leslie Nielsen as the captain, is very good. He plays it straight, but not stupid, like in those "Naked Gun" movies.

Bruce Kimmel, and Cindy Williams team very well together. Their other movie, "The First Nudie Musical" is pure joy, and this one is maybe one small step below that. Their final dance number is something to behold, and when you see Cindy at the talent show, prepare yourself to be dazzled. She adds so much life, and amusement to this film.

There are low points, but still this is a good movie, I only wished I could have seen it on the big screen. As others have mentioned, the creature singing, and dancing is a special, funny treat.

The direction was good, and if you have a few bucks, give it a go. With it re-released as "Naked Space", it should be easy to find. I had hoped that the DVD version would have had something extra on it, it doesn't.

I rate this movie a 8 out of 10.
