Editorial Reviews

NASA astronauts encounter a damaged alien space craft while orbiting the moon and discover inside it a mysterious alloy shell as well as the skeletal remains of humanoid that carbon dates to 14000 years old. The shell hosts a hostile robotic species with an incredible intellect that can use pieces from whatever is lying around to create a body so it can move about After returning to earth, the robotic monster goes on a rampage, laser blasting military personnel and anyone else in its way. When it is finally subdued, the astronauts go back to the moon to see if there's any other signs of life. They find the remains of a once thriving alien civilization that has been reduced to rubble. What they don't realize is that the species which left the humanoids dead so long ago have waited for the right kind of parts needed to juice up their ship and attack Earth. Walter Koenig (Star Trek's Mr. Chekov) and Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead) star in this very entertaining sci-fi B-movie. Wacky, gory, and strangely humorous, it is also has impressive recreations of various equipment associated with NASA which is a testament to what you can do with ingenuity and creativity on a tight budget.

I love this B movie. Bruce Campbell leaves his chainsaw at home but the scene with the steriotype scientist trys to make contact with the alien invader is worth seeing the whole movie for. The monsters are original and the concept is new. But there is still enough corneyness to keep it firmly in the B catagory. Just don't expect to see anything like Ed Wood or Dark Star. This is almost a serious movie.

Let me clarify...amzingly CHEESE! This is a movie I saw NUMEROUS times in 89 I think. That was back in the day of the digital video stabiliser, two VCR's and an RCA cable. Get the picture? ANYWAY, I must have seen this film 200 times! Koeing is putting forth the best dead-pan performance of his career! It really showed just how good of an actor he is. His inadvertant (or In your FACE) caracture of his friend Bill Shatner is CLASSIC! No he dosen't do a direct imitation of a certian famous (or infamous) starship captain, but I caught a LOT of the Shatneresque overacting!
Bruce Campbell is in his prime form in this film. His role is just HILARIOUS! He really shows that our favorite grocery clerk is better as an astronaut. Hey, I'd fly in space with him!
This film has it all! Classic Sci-Fi feel, a unique story( Virus was a ripoff of this film), plastic UZI's, inflatible tents, 14,000 year old corpses, and the like. This is a perfect movie to just hit the floor laughing while you wizz in your pants! Definetly worth the time it will take to find this vid.
Unless the release it on DVD. THAT IS A BIG HINT YOU GOOBERS!

As the title states, SAVE YOUR MONEY and don't bother purchasing this product. It uses the EXACT same master produced by Oliver Krekel for the German Blu-Ray release. Sadly at this time these are the ONLY widescreen scans available, but the masters used for this release have been DNR'd worse then the re-release of Predator, the UHE edition that drew harsh criticism (and rightfully so) for it's overzealous use of digital noise reduction (DNR). Unless you enjoy watching waxy closeups that resemble watching a film that's being projected through a lens slathered in vaseline, otherwise vote with your wallet and avoid this release completely until a proper remaster is done, by competent individuals that understand the way a film is SUPPOSED to be viewed.

Moontrap [VHS]

Okay so this movie never made it to dvd I get that, but it's still worth a look by any si-fi or Bruce Campbell fan. Moontrap stars Walter Koenig from the original Star Trek series and Bruce Campbell who kicks demon butt in all the Evil Dead movies. If you can get use to the idea that Bruce is the sidekick to little Walter in this flick, you may enjoy it more. Remember, this was made in the 80's before computer graphics so some of the effects may not amaze you.
It starts off with Bruce and Walter investigating a huge alien ship from the moon passing earth and they bring back a football type artifact that builds itself into a killer robot using anything handy. So of course our two heros have to go to the moon and investigate. Guess what, give up? They find a girl, a darn good looking girl in a palace on the lunar surface that helps them stop an alien invasion plot to conquer earth, maybe.
I paid about $12 bucks for this movie and I think I got a pretty good deal.Please be kind to animals. Remember Karma, she knows things.

I have seen this movie. I bought a DVD copy. The DVD copy is from a VHS original. VHS on its BEST of all possible days was CRAP. The DVD is a basement copy. I keep hoping for a REAL release of this most interesting film. Maybe even Blu-ray. But I am not holding my breath. You MAY be able to snag a Betamax copy which at least would be viewable. The DVD from VHS will leave you badly needing vision correction.Don't waste your time or money. There is an OFF air copy out there too. It too sucks! About 25 lines of resolution. It is like trying to watch it through an old coca cola bottle. The film may not be star wars but it deserves better than this.

I must stress this is a review of the DVD version. My wife and I watched it as soon as it arrived and even she commented on how good the print was. It looked great on our big screen TV. Very good on screen interviews with Walter and Bruce. I won't go into detail about the film as fans like me who also own an ex rental Beta version (which is now useless as my last Beta Recorder gave up the ghost after 25 years of faithful service) or other fans who are fortunate enough to have a VHS print, will appreciate the effort that has gone into this restoration. I understand some folks are not happy with the blu ray version. All I can report is the DVD version if amazing.

One star for the Blu Ray quality. It's hardly better than a VHS tape. Pointless release. Any DVD will do with this kind of transfer as basis. See also http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Moontrap-Blu-ray/102290/#Review

This is B movie was not improved by the poor quality copy from VHS to DVD.

Koenig's acting has not improved since the original Star Trek series, and Campbell is a one man "army of dorkness". Despite its obvious flaws Moontrap is still mildly entertaining and somewhat amusing. If you are a fan of Walter Koenig, Bruce Campbell, Star Trek (TOS), or the Evil Dead movies you may want to add this DVD to your collection.
