Trivia

The film went into production in the spring of 1981 at the Hammond Lumber Co. lot in Venice, CA, where New World's studio facilities were located. Additional sets, including the surface of the planet and the exterior of the pyramid, were built at a soon-to-be demolished Bekins Storage facility. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Great Sci-Fi B-Movie With One of the Best Erotic Scene Ever
28 August 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Revised review : I committed a mistake in my previous review of 28 Aug 2004. The actress raped by a worm is indeed Taaffe O'Connell. An IMDB User called my attention.

A spacecraft travels to a distant planet to rescue the crew of another space ship. The craft has some damages in the landing and needs some repairs. While looking for survivors from the former expedition, one by one of the rescue team members is being killed in weird situations, created by the materialization of their own fears. First of all, I found the IMDB User Rating unfair, since this movie does not deserve only 4.1. Keeping in mind that it is a B-movie, the story has a good premise, although having many cliches of the genre: the menaces of the planet are nothing but the fruit of the imagination of each person, projecting their inner fear. Further, this movie has probably one of the most erotic scene I have ever seen. Dameia, the character played by the sexy Taaffe O'Connell, has a great fear of maggots, being a kind of worm-phobic person. When she meets the huge maggot, she starts screaming for help, while the creature with many legs rips her clothes off and rapes her. Her naked body is covered and lubricated by a slime, and her initial panic becomes into a very intense multiple orgasm. Other good attractions are the names of James Cameron (as unit director in the bottom of the credits), the later soft porn director Zalman King (`Wild Orchid') and Robert `Freddy Krueger' Englund in the cast. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `Galáxia do Terror' (`Galaxy of Terror')
