Stardust Celluloid Oddity
23 July 2015 | by (Radioactive Dream) – See all my reviews

I love a good movie oddity, I mean who doesn't...did you know about such classics as 'The Jet Benny Show' or 'Modern Day Houdini' ? I only knew about those for a long time because I had a sci-fi\horror\fantasy movie book, why should you care? Well, those movies exist for one reason or another, and that might just bother you.

Ramble, ramble, fizzle-pop, Okay, Andy Colby reminded me of an episode of Deep Space 9 where the principle characters encounter the characters from the original Star Trek show with Shatner etc. and the point being it came off as very strange super-imposing the actors of DS9 over old Star Trek footage and having them 'not interact' but interact all the same - this is the basis of the entire movie here. This must be the most low-budget Corman flick ever, it reuses footage from other Corman cheapies that heavily reuse past footage already e.g. 'Star Raiders' uses much stock from 'Battle Beyond The Stars', so you are getting thrice recycling or something...the second tier to cheapest must go to 'Gas! -Or- It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It.' if you haven't seen the aforesaid picture, do me a favor and remember to eat beans before watching in order to give the proceedings some kind of context.

To wrap things up, Andy Colby is by&large a Kool-Aid commercial, but there is a great moment near the start of the movie when Andy frequents the Video Rental place and picks up 'Slumber Party Massacre II' before choosing the magic VHS...yes! I spotted that even on the fuzzy low definition tape I was watching in on, couldn't make out the other movies on the shelf though, I think I may have glimpsed 'The Wizard' not sure. I give this a ** out of **** because it is a rare oddity and I am a bit nostalgic about Star Raiders.
