Starcrash Roger Corman Cult Classics 2010 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This film simply lacked passion and seemed from the outset to be nothing but an awful Star Wars (1977) copy. I was hesitant to go as high as 5 stars but I suppose the basic premise of the film is acceptable enough, it is an enjoyably awful, cheese space film.
I find Starcrash (1978) very stirring and exciting. At its heart, it is a close relative of the klutzy Italian giallo films, a swashbuckling Star epic full of political space color, ridiculous special effects, dumb intrigue, and moral danger in space. Christopher Plummer emerges as a memorable villain, and David Hasselhoff’s presence is enough to further increase the mystique of the Hasselhoff cheese legacy. I sense some unbalance in this movie. The script is so bad that it makes Marjoe Gortner and Joe Spinell look lame but Caroline Munro wearing a bikini on is hot.
Starcrash (1978) is underrated cheese and more imaginative than most cheese space films ever shot.
Not only does this movie entertain kids of all ages but it holds up well to repeat viewing’s and earns the right to be called a cheese space classic.
