The Beast in Space (1980)

The premise of The Beast in Space should have been warning enough for me to stay away from it: an exploration company is sending a bunch of people to an unknown planet to mine some stuff that will make neutron bombs. What they don’t know is this planet is home to a computer that makes everyone want to have sex with everyone else. Oh yeah and there’s a satyr running around with a giant strap-on.

It's about to get sci-fi steamy in here...

It’s bad in all the worst ways; the plot is virtually non-existent, but when it’s there, it doesn’t make any sense. There are random shots of someone’s boobs, pretty obviously not the boobs of any of the chicks that are in this movie. And, oh yeah, there’s a satyr running around with a giant strap-on.

I'd work on that spaceship.

I mean, basically, it’s soft-core porn that seems to be trying for something else. But, as we all know, if you try to do to much, you’re not going to do anything well. And that’s pretty much the story with The Beast in Space. The sex is bad, the story’s bad, the acting’s bad; ugh, it’s just so bad. The red, felt helmets look kind of cool, though. Eh?

    I have never seen this film. However I have seen other sci-fi films by this director and they were all poor, but fun to laugh at. I saw those red and silver space uniforms in one of his other films as well.
