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.

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.Read more ›
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?Read more ›

Don't waste your money!!!! I was expecting it to be like The Beast and not even close!! In the trash it goes...Published 5 months ago by agc1975
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.
Had the potential for a good movie with the campy effects and all, but like The Beast, it lets you down.Published 21 months ago by ronstoppable
I had the regular version (without hardcore inserts/sex scenes, without nudity).
The acting is stale and the script was just a below average Italian Horror... Read more
I must say that even this one seemed a little odd and off to me. I really enjoy and recommend all of Al Bradley's sci-fi space fliks but this one felt different to me. Read morePublished on August 16, 2013 by alyka
