Product Description

The Complete Unrated Director's Cut For The First Time Ever In America!

In 1975, European sex symbol Sirpa Lane shocked the world with her performance as a maiden defiled by a ferociously aroused animal in the erotic classic THE BEAST. Five years later, the beautiful-but-doomed actress would plummet from arthouse to grindhouse in this insanely unofficial outer space 'sequel' packed with rampant sex, cheezy effects, barnyard passions and yet another graphic ravaging by a hugely-endowed man-beast. Marina Hedman (SATAN'S BABY DOLL) and Venantino Venantini (BLACK EMANUELLE) co-star in this jaw-dropping intergalactic epic that combines the immortal '80s Italian genres of sleazy sci-fi and depraved sexual saga, now fully restored from the original film lab negative purchased at a Rome bankruptcy auction.

Featurette with actor Venantino Venantini

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic and rare Sleaze and Uranus Milk! August 8, 2008
Severin's release of The Beast in Space was remarkable in that they found the only complete print in a basement of a condemned porno theater outside Bologna. So here it is, the first time ever this is presented on DVD anywhere in the world. With that special presentation, what are you exactly in for?

Without stating the obvious, the film is a mess. But thats where the fun begins. There is no real telling of what is happening, but one might surmise some of the possibilities. Ultimately this film is riding the coattails of two other films: The Beast (La Bete) and Star Wars. How you might imagine to combine these two films into one heap of psuedo-science-fiction with a touch of pornography? Its not easy, and watching this is not very easy either.

The film is basically about Captain Larry (Vassili Karis) who, after beating up his enemy and having hot sex, discovers the mysterious energy force called Antalium, which is, evidently is a sexual energy. He sets up his team complete with Sirpa Lane (from the original La Bete) who all go to a planet to get more of this stuff. There they meet strange things, like horses having sex, cardboard aliens, phony light-sabers and a ugly bearded man who controls it all. After they partake in a dinner, an orgy starts to emerge and soon everyone is having a great time. The big hairy man we soon finds out is a Satyr and he is ready to put out, specifically to Sirpa.

There are hardcore scenes in this version, but its really not erotic or sexually interesting. While the film is already cut-up to an incomprehensible mess, the hardcore footage does not help matters much either.

3.0 out of 5 stars If You've Seen The Beast, Then by all means watch this September 2, 2008
Verified Purchase
I had seen "The Beast" ( La Bete') and decided to give this a try. I actually liked the original as it had a good story. This one has a story, but it is somewhat flimsy. I was reminded of "Flesh Gordon" while watching this. The EFX are hokie to say the least. There are some flashbacks from the original, in particular the Horses doing their thing. It is explicit and thus the XXX rating. I would recommend renting it, if possible, before buying. Charlie S.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just aweful, doesn't live up to its billing July 10, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Where to begin? How horribly can a concept be systematically destroyed?

This movie came out in 1978 or 1980, depending on where you look (the case says '80, but online sources say '78). Either way, the special effects are straight out of the 1940's. There are low budgets, and there are no budgets. Didn't these guys learn ANYTHING from Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, or other 60's-70's sci-fi? Even with a barely-there budget things could have been much better.

But let's get to the real appeal of this movie, the schlocky sex and the promise of our heroine getting "yet another graphic ravaging by a hugely-endowed man-beast." Total letdown. As a huge fan of the crazy, I-can't-believe-they-actually-did-that, full-frontal of the creature, semen-soaked monster scenes from The Beast (La bête), this promise of a follow-up fell completely flat. Our "hugely-endowed man-beast" is a bearded old man with hooved faun's legs. The faun statue in the dining hall was more erotic.

There's no "equipment" on display, even in this unrated version, so you get no creature eye candy as you definitely did in The Beast. All you get is some above and to-the-side views of him doing her missionary style. Oh, and the furry legs are very, very obviously nylons with some thin, curly fur stuck on. What a total letdown. I just noticed there is an X-rated version offered. I don't know if that one is any more graphic but (1) I'm not going to pay again to find out and (2) our bearded old "man-beast" is hardly sexy anyway, so seeing more of his equipment wouldn't do anything for me anyway.

I could also go on and on about the terrible plot holes and the totally baffling horse mating scene. How did horses get on this far-off, unexplored planet?

2.0 out of 5 stars For completists only! October 7, 2008
As a lover of most cult films, I found I had to try really hard to enjoy this film. I am a completist so I felt the need to own it, but it lacks most of those things one looks for in a cult film. The pornographic inserts are "yawn", no real gore, no real action etc. There are a few small moments of spaceship on a string effects to give camp fans a grin but I have to say that's about it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing wierdness June 19, 2010
By orvuus
To counter a few other reviews I've read, I must say if you enjoy Italian cinema at all, you will probably like this, or at least find it wierdly fascinating. The print from Severin films is in pretty good shape, and the DVD has some entertaining extras. Forget this being a sexy movie -- the unrated version, after all, has some kind of random hardcore footage done by none of the actors here, but instead enjoy the sets made of aluminum foil and whatever else they managed to cobble together on a budget. This movie won't win awards for anything, it's true, but it's at least worth a look. Personally I find the bizarre plot more interesting than those of some of the current absurd sci fi movies that are lauded for the virtue of their "special effects."

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what expected
I actually expected more of the movie, would have liked to see more of the satyr in it, the rest of the storyline is very predictable.
Buy it if you must.

1.0 out of 5 stars Campy
Several scenes were spliced in that were obviously from different movies altogether. Very campy movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very sexy
This was a very poor attempt at erotica if it was an attempt at all. Boring, drawn out with very fake sex scenes. Complete waste of money.
