Editorial Reviews

In the distant future, a federation marshal arrives at a research lab on a remote planet where a monstrous genetic experiment is loose and feeding on the scientists who created it. Enter into the Forbidden World - an outrageous, sexy and violent exercise in Alien-like terror!

Customer Reviews

I gave it 3 stars because it wasn't that I didn't like it.
Matt Ployhar
When we finally see a full grown monster, it looks like a hybrid of a giant rubber black widow and an Alien xenomorph.
John's Horror Corner

Format: DVD
Corman's Galaxy of Terror is usually referred to as a rip-off/cash-in on Alien, but that film has very few similarities with Alien. Corman's low budget schlocker, Forbidden World definitely fits the Alien rip-off bill much more accurately..
The film involves an intergalactic buttkicker named Colby(Jesse Vint) who's summoned to a science lab on a distant planet to check out an experiment that "got loose". And I'm assuming, to kick it's butt. Colby arrives at the station to find that "Subject 20" as it's called, has escaped, killed all the lab animals and locked itself away in the incubator for a little R&R before it goes on a killing spree. Colby spends a good amount of his time giving the two, horny and attractive scientist chicks something to study in the after hours. Meanwhile, Subject 20 finally makes up his mind to leave the incubator on account of some flunky who decides to open the incubator door to get a better look at it when he noticed it started moving. Now it more or less becomes Alien-Roger Corman's Alien, that is! That is to say, shameless and cheesy(it ought to be with a character named Colby), with a bunch-O gore and T&A.
Once again, Corman really stretches his dollar. This film had a smaller budget than Galaxy of Terror, though in some parts it actually looks a bit more slick than Galaxy. The Making Of.. documentary on the disc provides some interesting insight on how the film was made. The second disc is the director's cut titled Mutant(a much better title considering the title "Forbidden World" doesn't make a lot of sense in the context of the movie). It's worth a look, though the film didn't get the same slick remastering as the first disc, so it's a bit rough.
All in all, another great Corman disc from Shout Factory. Makes a good double feature with Galaxy of Terror(especially at about 3 AM).

I can not believe it has been 28 years!!!!! I was maybe 13 years old when my friends and I bootlegged this movie when one could still record off the main movie tracks!!!! I fell in love with this "Alien" knock-off movie for two simple reasons:

1. It kept me wanting to see what happened next.
and
2. The shower scene...need I say more???!!!

This movie was ahead of it's time with its play on the bio-engineering scenario. I loved the erotic intensity of the characters and spent many of long evenings with fantasies of the shower scene, the voyeur scene and the sauna scene. I loved the build-up of the creature roaming about making it a hunt for more then just a blood thirsty, brainless monster. It was a powerful play on men and women playing "God" with this creation that turns out to be a bit more then they thought it would be. I loved the B-movie play on it because it had more bite then many of these so called A-movies out today. It did not have CGI, it did not have your casual stand-ins for hard to do scenes, and it did not fall into the jittery home-made movie feel. It stood alone on a small budget, a cult following, and some of the most intense erotic sci-fi interactions between both humans and the creation. I am definitely pre-ordering this so it will be on my doorstep for me to expose my own children to something I could never put into words here but left me with lasting impressions for many years. As a writer of paranormal fiction this movie was one of the few to influence my build up on erotic vs. horror intensity. Give it a try, I can saw for the most part it will leave you panting for more, in more ways then one!!

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
In an isolated lab on a barren planet, a group of scientists are experimenting with gene splicing to solve a food shortage. An experimental life form kills a bunch of lab animals and is contained in the lab where it spins a cocoon, and begins a transformation. When a bounty hunter is called in to contain the rapidly evolving genetic experiment, things get bloody.

I don't want to go into the story too much and spoil things for those who haven't seen this gem, so I'll mainly focus on the Blu-Ray quality / extras.

Long out of print on video, and previously available on a crappy (and ridiculously expensive)import DVD, Forbidden World finally gets the re-release it deserves on Blu-Ray!
A perfect mix of horror, sci-fi, gratuitous nudity, monsters and gore -Pure entertainment!

I have wanted to see this movie again for years, and had almost resigned myself to forking out the cash for the import DVD. When I saw that this was finally getting an American Blu-Ray release, I pre-ordered it immediately.

I was shocked at how good this blu ray transfer looked for a film this old! Extremely sharp pictures and vivid colors - I haven't seen this movie for over 25 years, but I don't remember it looking this good. A couple of the darker scenes are a little grainy, but overall a very impressive transfer.

A list of contents:

Disc 1 Blu-Ray: Widescreen Theatrical Cut, Roger Corman interview, Cast and Crew interviews, special effects featurette, poster and stills gallery,theatrical trailer, several other New World trailers.

Disc 2 DVD : 'Unrated Director's Cut' (full frame) with commentary by the director.
