Default Starcrash (1979)

I seriously love this film! The cheesy SFX, prime stilton acting and let's not forget Caroline Munro's skimpy outfits all add up to make this one of the most entertaining Sci-Fi flicks I've seen.

I have the 2 disc French release of it that's signed by Luigi Cozzi. It's a shame it hasn't had a wider DVD release.

I remember seeing that one on VHS. It does star the Hoff....... and I remember it was terrible. Some of the worse effects and acting ever but failing to have a camp charm.

Great supporting cast (Bob Tessier, Joe Spinell etc) but precious little charm. What on earth inspired John Barry to score it?

I think more money was spent on the score than the effects.

The Hoff™ had eyeliner that looked as if it was applied with a thick permanent marker.

Well.after watching this trailer,I've decided that I'd like to see Star Crash released by Shameless or Arrow.How about a nice boxset of cheesy sci-fi b-movies?
