Button Moon had a bigger budget
18 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but the sheer awfulness of this film meant that the only thing I could do was laugh at it. BEYOND THE UNIVERSE is a wannabe sci fi epic, except the problem is that they only had a couple of hundred dollars to make the film, so everywhere you look you see sick on beards, wigs, and sets that look like they're made of cardboard.

Director Robert Emenegger certainly has form. He forged a career for himself in the late '70s and early '80s, making one low rent sci fi flick after another; LABORATORY and TIME WARP are other examples of his work. Sadly, while BEYOND THE UNIVERSE certainly has potential, the budget just can't match the level of imagination involved.

The narrative follows a strange morality drama theme, with futuristic elders choosing what to do in the wake of a catastrophe that destroys the Earth. Mucho stock footage is the order of the day here, alongside some wobbly spaceship stuff, just like in TIME WARP. There aren't even any cult actors here, just a ton of boring scenes of old guys sitting in a room and discussing important things. It's a mess.
