Pretty poor
26 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another low budget sci-fi oddity from the writer/director team of Allan Sandler and Robert Emenegger. This one's an outer space drama set on board a spaceship with no aliens for a change. They couldn't afford a paycheque for Cameron Mitchell so we get his daughter Camille starring instead.

Mitchell features in a time-padding wraparound story as a psychic investigating the mysterious disappearance of a crew onboard a space ship drifting through the universe. The story plays out in flashback as we learn of the terrible fate that befell those involved. The sets and costumes are as cheap and cheerful as you'd expect, and the ever-hammy Adam West plays the ship's captain.

There's actually a decent story here waiting to be told, so it's just a shame the execution is spoilt by endless padding and long-winded dialogue scenes that drag the pacing down. I love the idea of the high stakes poker game so it's just a shame Sandler couldn't have made more of it. Emenegger merely produces and contributes the music to this one. As with CAPTIVE, a few brief gory scenes are thrown in to shock viewers.
