Storyline

A spacecraft travels to a distant planet to rescue the crew of another space ship that has crashed. Their craft has damages in the landing and needs to be repaired. Baelon commands the rescue team formed by Cabren, Alluma, Dameia, Quuhod and the rookie Cos. While looking for survivors from the former expedition, Cos is murdered and but they do not find any survivor. However they cannot depart from the plane due to an electromagnetic field. Commander Ilvar joins the team to search for the cause of the interference in the spacecraft. Captain Trantor stays in the craft with the technician Ranger and the cook Kore but soon one by one of the rescue team members is killed in weird situations, created by the materialization of their own fears.

When the captain engages the hyper-drive, she is standing at the control panel. Then follows a montage of the crew members strapped into their seats, including the captain. When hyper-drive disengages a few seconds later, she is still standing at the control panel in exactly the same spot. See more »

Aliens + Event Horizon + Joanie Loves Chachi - Chachi = Galaxy of Terror
8 September 2009 | by (Doomed Theater of Despair) – See all my reviews

Early eighties Roger Corman sci-fi flick featuring a cast of b-grade actors on a mission to a distant planet to investigate a dying signal from a doomed space vessel. Once they arrive on the planet they soon discover that the crew is no more and that a black pyramid draws them in mysteriously. The cast's worst nightmares are manifested into reality as they are picked off one by one. But by whom exactly? If you were stumped as to who it was might I interest you in some low-property tax swamp land.

I have never been much of a Corman fan but this is one of his most ambitious and entertaining films. The fact that this is considered one of the 50 worst films of all time is not only silly but calls into question the bad movie credentials of whomever listed Galaxy of Terror. Have you even seen War of the Robots? Any movie that dispatches Erin Moran by crushing her skull and features the Hentai-like mutant worm raping to death a very buxom Taaffe O'Connell deserves cult status damn you! This is my third Zalman King film reviewed on this site, through no fault of my own mind you, and his limited range as an actor leaves little wonder why he made the move to directing light porn. Edward Albert is not very engaging as the male lead Cabren while I hope Sid Haig was paid by his screen time rather his amount of dialogue. Robert Englund, Ray "I've been old for 1000 years" Walston and Grace Zabriskie, who was great in Twin Peaks, round out the cast. If you happen upon this movie give it a watch. It's sure to entertain.
