Tales from the Lumber Yard: The Making of Galaxy of Terror (2010)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Extremely well-made documentary about the making of the cult film GALAXY OF TERROR. This documentary runs just over an hour and I'm sure even the most die-hard fans will be shocked at how many people they gathered up to be interviewed here. Not only do we get Roger Corman but also on hand are screenwriter Marc Siegler, director Bruce D. Clark, Robert Englund, Sid Haig, Taaffe O'Connell and Grace Zabriskie. Countless other make-up, special effect and other production members are also on hand. The film kicks off with Corman discussing how he started New World Pictures and explaining the type of pictures they wanted to make. When then turn to the production of this ALIEN clone and what the screenwriters originally wanted for the story and of course we have Corman giving his own ideas, which include the infamous maggot rape scene. All of the actors tell terrific stories about meeting Corman and how they were hired. We also get to hear about every detail of the production including the work done by future Oscar-winner James Cameron. Cameron actually gets his own segment and it's pretty clear that the majority of people who worked with him hate his guts. Towards the end of the doc we get to hear about the original cut of the film, the battle with the MPAA and eventually its cult status. Fans of the film are going to love seeing all of these people talking about the film and those unfamiliar with the movie will enjoy it as well.
