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!!!!
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!!Read more ›
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
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.
Made on (obviously) a fraction of the Star Wars budget this movie should be 60's technicolour but is actually from the same year as the Lucas epic. The cast look as if they enjoyed hamming it up, or were so bored they didn't even bother to act! So an evil Count is prepared to destroy everything to become master of the universe and the only thing that stands in his way is (allegedly) Stella Star, the smuggler pilot of a spaceship. Not sure how much of that last bit is true as Caroline Munro looks so fabulous with her delectable cleavage bursting out of her costumes for the best part of the movie but does she really save the universe? Who cares when she is looking so sexy and strutting her stuff in true 70's fashion (literally)! The arrival of the The Hoff as the movie heads towards the last half hour adds more eyeliner and cheese and gives Munro a love interest to make up for the non-human partner and the robot she has been paired with until then. And guess what, the universe is saved!!
As a lover of the old Doug McClure films (Land and People That Time Forgot, At The Earth's Core, etc.) I can appreciate this film as it is but I had to dock a star as it didn't quite match those other films mentioned, saved simply by Caroline Munro and her sexy cleavage.
Mind you I half expected Austin Powers to suddenly appear, look Stella Star straight in the bosom and say "Ohh, do behave!".

Some weird Star Wars B-Movie, extremely bizzarro. A must see film. Barbarella is similar too, which is more naughty than nice, but still tasteful.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
