Set in 2032, as missions from Earth are being sent to explore Mars. After two groups of astronauts are mysteriously killed following the discovery of strange artefacts on the martian surface, the crew of the SC-37 go in to try and find out what happened. They soon learn what became of their predecessors when a bloodthirsty space monster begins lunching on members of the crew. Will any of them make it back to Earth alive? Written by

In 2032, two members of the research team of the spacecraft SC-37 find a stone in Mars and bring it to the craft for study. A life form (lately called Gar) leaves the crystal and attacks the oxygen reservoirs of SC-37, killing all the crew. The space base L-5 rescues SC-37, and Gar explodes the base. Only five persons survive in SC-37, and they face with a developed and threatening life form. The end of the story is amazingly corny and bad. It was my fault, I did not believe in IMDb Users reviews and rating and many Video Books rating, and decided to see this flick. I like trash movies, and sometimes I find interesting unknown movies, but 'Star Crystal' is indeed a cheesy, ridiculous and corny Sci-Fi. The VHS distributed in Brazil by 'Look Video' shows in the front cover that the year is 2032, and in the back cover 2035. Therefore, even the Brazilian cover is a mess, in a total lack of care with the non-correlated information. The design concept of the spacecraft is one of the most ridiculous I have ever seen. The persons have to crawl to move to another compartment. Imagine a long voyage to Mars and the crew having to crawl in a craft wearing, for example, space outfits! The screenplay and the dialogs are very silly and the ham actors and actresses complete this horrible film. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): 'Terror no Espaço' ('Terror in the Space')
