Reviews

The entire galaxy is in peril and infamous space-smuggler Stella Star, the greatest star pilot ever to command a vessel, is its only hope. The evil Count Zartharn from the League of the Dark Worlds has constructed a weapon of limitless power capable of destroying anything in its path. Stella Star and her loyal crew must navigate the darkest corners of the solar system to find the Count's hideout and bring his reign of terror to an end. Originally released the year after 'Star Wars' and with a 'Barbarella' budget, this piece of cult cinema is a sexy space classic and a must see for all sci-fi fans. With the addition of a John Barry soundtrack that makes this DVD a collectable classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prepare yourself for STARCRASH....... 8 Sep 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Two former space smugglers are given the task to investigate the Haunted Stars for an evil count's battlestation. Thus starts STARCRASH, the 1979 Italian scfi movie riding on the shirt tails of STAR WARS.

Featuring former Bond girl, Caroline Munro, and the perma-grinned,Marjoe Gortner as the smugglers, Stella Star and Akton, and also starring a young David Hasselhoff in the role of the Emperor's son, STARCRASH has more in common with the FLASH GORDON serials of the Thirties than scfi of the Seventies; with its gaudy colours, the costumes and the not so special effects,
STARCRASH is quite a fun movie, as long as it's not taken too seriously.

This DVD from Substance/Jef films is a region 0, NTSC, widescreen release using a much travelled French print; all opening and closing credits are in French. The film itself is dirty, scratched and in places jumps; there are also missing frames causing characters to appear to leap when walking.
The Extras are: French trailer, which is better condition than the film, brief bios of the cast and a nominal photo gallery.

The film itself is also available on another DVD release as FEMALE SPACE INVADERS, available on Amazon, but is full screen, the image quite soft but has no damage to the print. So the choice is yours......

One last note. Many have pointed out that STAR WARS: Episode 2 appears to use the same basic storyline of STARCRASH. Lucas what were you thinking!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The pinnacle of "So Bad It's Good".... 16 July 2010
By Robster
Format:DVD
It's about time this got a proper R2 release... It's gotta be one of the ultimate guilty pleasures and is unquestionably one of the best "So Bad It's Good" movies of all time...

Luigi Cozzi's Star Wars rip off certainly lacks the special effects and cash soaked sets of the George Lucas film it immitates, but what it looses in acting, plot & dialogue, it more than makes up for in pure fun, laughs, charm & utter movie madness... Quite how the producers convinced John Barry to produce the excellent score is beyond me.

Caroline Munro isn't too shabby either...

Get it today, grab several bottles of wine, transport yourself back to 1979 and smile all the way to the end credits...

10/10 - Unmissable

4.0 out of 5 stars So Bad, it's frickin great ! 25 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If there was ever a movie that spawned the phrase "It's so bad it's good" category then Starcrash must surely be that movie. Terribly acted, crappy special fx, mind numbingly bad dialogue and a stupid plot, all these things should have you reaching for the "Off" button on your remote within the first 10 mins but this film is amazingly entertaining and charming at the same time.

Obviously produced to cash in on the success of Star Wars - The Italian film industry (who ripped off any successful genre of film) quickly thrust this into production at the end of 1977. The film however ran into some production problems and didn't reach cinema's till the beginning of 1979, even though a low budget star wars rip off, Starcrash was still a massive production undertaking for the Italian film industry at the time. Headed by English actress ( the always gorgeous) Caroline Munro as Stella Star, the cast also included 70's popular American TV actor Marjoe Gortnor and a little unknown actor called David Haselhoff who was a wet behind the ears kid starring in his first big job ( what ever happened to him btw!) Most bizarrely of all and still somewhat of a mystery they roped in the legendary Christopher Plummer to play the emperor of the galaxy! I guess his agent told him he'd be playing the Emporer in Star Wars and turned up at the wrong set!

Even more of a bizarre coup! they even got the great John Barry to score the music for the film and his wonderful score gives added class to at least on the surface is a pretty bad movie. Barry's score here is as good ( in my opinion) as most of his classic scores like Dances with wolves and the Bond films.

Ok so there is more cheese in this movie than in your local supermarket but i love this movie to death!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stacrash a very guilty pleasure 26 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
I actually saw`this film at the cinema when it came out waaaay back in 1978/9 what i remember about it was the shockingly bad effects and the really funky acting!I also remember how much i enjoyed it too!I was just an impressionable 11 year old who was blown away by Star Wars and wanted to see every SF film that came out at the time.Looking at the trailer here it looks like its going to be as fun as i remember!!
Just as long as you take your brain out and take it for what it was a cheap italian SF film made with hardly any money but a lot of love!
Besides it has the beautiful Caroline Munroe in very fun outfits and the Hoff!!!!The score by James Bond composer John Barry is also worth a mention, a great lush orchestral score worthy of any of the Sf films that came out at the time.
So grab a few beers a very large pizza and some friends and have a giggle at this great little gem from the annals of SF films that rode on the back of Star Wars in the late 70's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Starcrash 27 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the few Star Wars rip-offs that I enjoyed when it came out. Another of the Star Wars rip-offs that I enjoyed was 'Battle Beyond The Stars'. It was nice to see it again.
