Newly Re-mastered in HD! Untamed! Uncaged! Unleashed in Space! Far into the future… a war rages on a distant, desolate planet. Taura (Sandy Brooke, Terror on Alcatraz), a voluptuous Amazonian beauty, finds herself mounting a battle against the forces of evil when she tangles with Bantor (Ross Hagen, The Hellcats), a sadistic government official. Soon she is sentenced to hard labor aboard the prison ship Star Slammer and must prove herself to her young female cellmates before earning their respect and leading them in a daring prison break. With every turn, Taura faces new dangers, as she must outwit the sex-starved warden, out-tough the tyrannical trustee, and battle jagger rats, astro zombies and alien monsters. She leads her small army into a space war that will bring their salvation or their final doom. Both a comedy and a sci-fi adventure packed with action and stunning special effects, Star Slammer takes you on a fun-filled ride to the edge of the universe! Along for the trip are veteran actors Aldo Ray (And Hope to Die), John Carradine (Invisible Invaders) and beauties Suzy Stokey (The Power), Marya Gant (Cannibal Hookers), Dawn Wildsmith (Surf Nazis Must Die) and Vivian Schilling (Soultaker). Produced by indie great Jack Harris (The Blob) and directed by cult filmmaker Fred Olen Ray (The Tomb).

They're cute, but the acting is just bad . . . it has that sense of "yep, we filmed it, got through the scene, good enough". I'm assuming one take, but . . . maybe not? The sets actually weren't bad, sort of high-school/college level, and the outdoor scenes were creatively enough done. Someone else noted that the costumes were self-provided, which I believe. I'm not sure anything could have saved the dialogue, but . . . the acting does not help. Caricatures, not characters. Unclear why Carradine was in this; I'm assuming a low point in his life. Watched on Amazon Prime ("home of free movies and creeping insanity"). Could not finish watching.
Guide: No swearing or sex. Nudity
I found it interesting that my favorite "prisoners" never really did anything else in cinema, really, so what does that say about my tastes when you think about it. But trust me, if you know what you are getting when you go in, you may have a good time with this. I surely did not watch this thinking I was going to get high art or something i would hear people talking about in a cafe somewhere down the line.
I'd watch it again! But next time with a drink or two.
