Escape From Galaxy 3 aka Starcrash II
Galactic princess Belle Star (Cheryl Buchanan) travels through space to escape from the evil dictator Oraclon (Don Powell) and discovers the concept of love on a foreign planet populated by tribal folk.
As the immense success of Star Wars (1977) spawned countless space-themed copycat films back in the day, this Italian attempt goes even one step further, shamelessly re-using space footage from the most notorious of the rip-off films, Starcrash (1978) – hence the alternate title Starcrash II. With unbelievably clumsy action sequences and ridiculously over the top pseudo-scientific dialogue, hauntingly romantic music tastelessly mixed together with disco funk, near porno-like spandex costumes and a lewd love/sex themed storyline that makes you wonder if this was initially meant to be a pornographical film, this colorful mistake of a space opera is sure to provide the late night crowd with a fun and unforgettable movie experience.
The screening is in English, with English subtitles.
