Editorial Reviews

For the first time on Blu-ray, this cult science fiction/horror film has been remastered in high definition for the best possible, most gruesome presentation!


The innermost fears of the mind become reality for the crew members of the Quest when they land on the barren planet Morganthus hoping to find the missing crew members of the starship Remus: only to discover something deadly waiting for them. Each member of the rescuing team must come face to face with their darkest fears or perish. The cast onboard the Quest includes Edward Albert (The House Where Evil Dwells), Erin Moran (Happy Days), Ray Walston (My Favorite Martian), Robert Englund (A Nightmare On Elm Street series), Zalman King (Blue Sunshine) and Sid Haig (House Of 1,000 Corpses).

The film also had its share of new and emerging talent behind the camera, including James Cameron (The Terminator, Aliens, Avatar), who did the production design, and Bill Paxton, who worked as a set decorator before later collaborating with Cameron in front of the camera as an actor.

I saw this when first released at the theater in 1980. It was a great terror movie. The tension runs throughout the movie as a group tries to escape a planet that prays upon their fears. One scene with a giant caterpillar and a scantilly clad lady was rather erotic. A good movie for fans of movies like Hellraiser and Phantasm. A young Erin Moran and Robert Englund do a decent job of acting. This is not something to take to serious, but to sit down and watch with a big bowl of popcorn some afternoon or evening. It certainly doesn't deserve to be put in the MST3K archive. Considering the time it was made and its budget I think it holds up pretty well. Look at how few SciFi movies that were made in the early 1980s have survived.

P.S. This is now available on DVD and Blu-ray. Not sure it's Blu-ray worthy but I did get the DVD version. Since this is a B movie I recommend you get it if you like it as it may go out of print.

Addendum 11/12/2013: Now available to view in Amazon Prime.

Galaxy of Terror, used to be regarded as trash by critics, but has grown a cult following, which it does deserve. While no major classic by any means, Galaxy does have quite a few good tings. Most of the acting is actually pretty good, while Sid Haig may only speak 1 line of dialogue, it was probably for the best. However this makes the character more mystique, & dare I say, kinda cool. Haigs character doesn't take crap from anybody. Regardless Haig still puts in a good performance. Englund also puts in a good performance, though his character is pretty much just sort of there.

This sci-fi horror from Roger Corman has it’s problems but, for the most part, is a well made and effective film that actually stands on it’s own despite being inspired by the success of Alien. There is some clunky dialog and choppy editing but, there is also spooky and tense atmosphere throughout and some good creature effects and gore and the visual FX are also quite good as well for a low budget feature. The film has garnered a reputation over the years based on the ‘giant worm scene’ but, it really is a good little sci-fi/horror that has plenty to offer aside from that quintessential Corman moment. The flick follows a rescue mission to the dark and mysterious planet Morganthus, a planet of horrors that holds a dark secret. The eclectic crew of the Quest must try and survive the mission and each other, as unknown forces seem intent on their demise. The cast is effective and includes Edward Albert, future Freddy Krueger Robert England, Happy Days’ Erin Moran and genre favorite Sid Haig. James Cameron of Titanic and Avatar fame was the production designer on the film, as well as, the second unit director and the set decorator was future actor, Bill Paxton. As usual, another Corman production featuring talent who would go on to fame and recognition. His films were the start of countless careers. A personal B-movie favorite. You can just see the similarities in production design with Cameron’s classic Aliens. Another beautiful blu-ray transfer from Scream Factory and a nice selection of extras that take one behind the scenes of this cult classic.

I saw GALAXY OF TERROR when it was first released in the 1980s. It was my favorite of the "top three" ALIEN ripoffs (the other two being FORBIDDEN WORLD and HORROR PLANET, aka INSEMINOID).

GALAXY OF TERROR is a weird film. Its sci-fi mysticism is more STAR WARS than ALIEN, but the sets are certainly "inspired" by ALIEN's H.R. Giger, albeit a poor man's Giger. (This IS a Roger Corman film.)

Others have explained the plot. Astronauts go on a rescue mission to a hostile planet, whereupon they meet strange deaths. Actress Taaffe O'Connell's nude rape scene by a giant, slimy maggot has become something of a cult event.

But what really sets this film apart from many DVD releases is its excellent "making of" documentary. Normally, I hate these things. They're usually just extended commercials (sometimes infomercials) shot when the film was made, to play on cable TV. Everyone just rehashes the plot, and offers obligatory praise (so you don't really know what they're thinking).

But GALAXY OF TERROR's "making of" documentary was shot in 2010 -- 29 years after the film was released. Many of these people are semi-retired, they have nothing to lose, so they can be trusted to tell the truth. Rather then prattling obligatory praise, they sound sincere, and offer interesting stories.

Roger Corman is interviewed, as are MANY of the actors (including Taaffe O'Connell), crew, and New World studio personnel. James Cameron (TITANIC, AVATAR) worked on GALAXY OF TERROR. He's not interviewed, but others discuss his work on the film.

This documentary (63 minutes long, according to the Internet Movie Database) is as interesting as the film itself, and that's rare.

The only fault with this DVD: when I hit the Display button on my DVD player, it won't reveal how long the film or documentary are, or how much time has elapsed. That's why I had to go to the Internet Movie Database to check the documentary's time.
