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.

Stick with Star Odyssey, War of the Robots and Cosmos:War of the Planets!! Definitely save this one for last if U must see it.
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? The scene is shown in a grainy, funhouse mirror effect that I assume is meant to invoke a mysterious atmosphere, but completely fails. And did we really need a blatant ripoff of light sabers while they were fighting the amazingly incompetent robot guards?
If you're hoping for anything like The Beast (La bête), prepare to be utterly disappointed. If you're simply expecting a cheesy, sexy bad-but-fun B movie diversion, you'll still be disappointed. This was just awful in every respect.
