You would think at least part of a movie called Deep Space would take place in outer space, but no. Oh, something does come crashing down to Earth here, but it's something a military black ops program put up there in the first place. Nothing could go wrong, they said. Well, despite some of the most intense random button-pushing ever captured on film, something does go wrong - really badly wrong. The end result is a low-budget knockoff of the creature in Alien running around killing people. With project scientists and the military helpless (or unwilling) to stop it, there's obviously only one force on Earth capable of saving the day - a sarcastic cop who doesn't play by the rules.

It apparently seemed like a good idea at the time: assemble a team of wacky scientists to create a deadly killing machine designed to fight America's future enemies, and then shoot it off into space. When it accidentally falls back to earth, these same guys say there's nothing to worry about because "the project" is in its dormant state. Well, it doesn't stay dormant for long, as two dumb kids find out the hard way. Detective Ian McLemore (Charles Napier) and his partner Jerry Merris (Ron Glass), despite always being on the verge of being fired, are always given the big cases, and this double homicide is one of them. Perpetual sarcasm aside, McLemore isn't the type who will let anyone or anything (such as his boss' orders or the military or even a helpful psychic played by Julie Newmar) get in the way of his solving a crime.

Deep Space proves to be even less exciting than it sounds. Sure, it's comical to watch grown men and women wrestle with the "monster," but way too much of this story involves far too little happening.

This was a prominent shelf filler back in the day of the big box format and is the best of the fred olen ray ouvre from that period. Starring B-movie stalwart Charles Napier theres no deep space here but there is a fun to see H R Giger clone monster with strangulating tentacles and gloopy residue everywhere. The direction is lazy as usual with olen ray movies and the actors struggle to maintain interest in what they are doing. One particularly bad actor playing a dotty scientist makes a glaring gaffe and refers to a police woman as "Doctor" but quickly corrects himself. A scene that should have been relegated to a blooper reel once again in true ray style, makes it to the final cut.An element that is all part and package of this amateur autuer and his slip shod style of film-making. A curious relic from the bygone golden age of straight to video pulp cinema. The sort of movie consistent with the "Grindhouse" sub-genre. Thanks.
