A Terrifying Double Feature Of Creature Frights!


In the aftermath of a chemically induced plague that wipes out most of the world, the only survivors are a small group of scientists trapped in a laboratory 500 feet below the ground in the Mojave Desert. But they are not alone. The Terror Within stars Academy Award winner George Kennedy (Cool Hand Luke), Andrew Stevens (The Fury) and Terri Treas (The Nest).


Phaebon had been thought to be a safe and controlled research facility until a distress signal calls for Commander Kreiger (Marc Singer) and his robot Tinpan. Together, they try to save the planet from a spreading virus and an odd and growing cocoon in Dead Space, a loose remake of Forbidden World. Also starring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Laura Tate.

The folks at Shout! Factory are still on a roll with the latest "Roger Corman's Cult Classics" Double Feature: THE TERROR WITHIN (1989) and DEAD SPACE (1991). This time they've paired a couple of Corman's later entries in the ALIEN/S sci-fi horror sweepstakes, one of which is an unabashed remake of the producer's own FORBIDDEN WORLD.

THE TERROR WITHIN is the better of the two monstrously derivative features on the disc, and stars George Kennedy, Andrew Stevens, Starr Andreef and Terri Treas. In the aftermath of some sort of biological apocalypse (referred to as "The Accident") five scientists and a couple of engineers huddle in an underground complex somewhere in the Mojave Desert (represented by Vasquez Rocks and Bronson Canyon), making only rare forays out into the plague-ravaged world, which is inhabited by mutated man-beasts they call "gargoyles." After they bring a female human survivor into the complex, it is discovered that she is pregnant with a gargoyle fetus. When they attempt to abort it, it bursts from her womb and escapes into the ventilation system, where, in a matter of hours, it grows to full maturity. Now there's a man-eating/woman-raping terror within their walls, and they must find a way to hunt it down and kill it if anyone is going to survive.

Screenwriter Thomas Cleaver's script is an shameless retread of ALIEN, set in a bunker rather than on a spaceship, but otherwise pretty much on target - right down to the characterizations of the two engineers, who act exactly like Yaphett Koto and Harry Dean Stanton in the template film. Still, director Thierry Notz keeps things moving at a good pace, the acting is generally better than average for a flick like this, and the monsters, while a little goofy, are pretty decent man-in-suit creations.

This review is solely for "Terror Within". I didn't bother to watch the second movie "Dead Space" so I can't really comment on it.

TERROR WITHIN

This film can pretty accurately be described as an "Alien" knockoff in terms of plot, but is a very good movie for its genre nonetheless.

The two best things this film had going for it were the surprisingly good special effects and the successful building of suspense at certain parts (especially towards the end). Several of the characters also seemed to have genuine concern/empathy for one another as opposed to other "disposable crew" type films. I attribute this to the fact that they had to live/survive with the help of one another underground perpetually as opposed to just being a rag tag crew who barely knew each other, only assembled for a temporary mission. The last remaining characters in particular seemed to genuinely care for one another's safety (despite the survival of each being crucial to the other).

The main "monster" (or as I should say "gargoyle") is definitely frightening looking, most notably at first. Though its monstrous alien appearance remains quite menacing throughout. The way the monster moved and reacted seemed quite organic as well, but did not give away that it was a costume. I hate when the actual actor's neck or some other body part is showing through (like in one scene in Mutations which ruined that otherwise good creepy movie for me). Some moron on IMDB claimed that the monster's costume looked "rubbery", but I disagree.

Dead Space

As much as I was looking forward to see this movie, I was left partially disappointed. It was mostly boring. The start of the movie with laser fights just gives a headache. It is also too dark at times. I liked acting, but I wasn't left with much feeling towards the movie. Game took nothing from the movie as well. they are completely different, and it is because of the game that I heard of the movie.

The terror within

This movie is truly good. It sets the right atmosphere. Mix it with good actors, good acting, good plot and cheap costumes of monsters and and you will get a good old movie. Even though it had cheap special effects, they weren't too bad and I still liked the movie. I am too far from disliking it. I'd say this is the movie to watch from this collection.

These are really fun movies. It's a good example of just how entertaining a low budget movie can be.

This is celebrated B movie entertainment. Simple plots, plenty of gore; feature secluded Space evil, and all the other elements that make these movies simple and entertaining Cult Classics. Although these aren't movies for everyone, most horror fans will appreciate them.

You should definitely check these out if you're a fan of horror, Cult Classics, and especially if you're a B movie fan.
