Cheesy, Ridiculous and Corny Sci-Fi
16 September 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

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')
