There was a science fiction movie that came out in the late seventies that changed cinema forever.
That movie was Star Wars, and it inspired a host of copy-cats that couldn’t quite get the grandeur of scope of the original. This is one of those failed attempts, but its failure is spectacular – psychic aliens, cowboys in space, an evil empire, re-used shots, and drawing as much from Seven Samurai as Star Wars and somehow managing to miss the point of both. It’s awesomely terrible, one of the best worst movies you’ll ever see, made all the better for the earnest effort that went into its creation.
Check out the trailer:
It’s… it’s beautiful. And three Gentlemen gifted with comedic brilliance are bringing it to the HR Macmillan Space Centre on October 27th.
Oh, yes, it’s true – three of the minds behind the rise of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 reboot are bringing this must-see disaster to a planetarium’s massive dome screen. On Friday, October the 27th, you will have the chance to see Eric Fell, Shaun Stuart, and Patrick Mahlia return to the HR Macmillan Space Centre with one of the greatest sci-fi failures to ever exist.
So come bask in the cold glow of flickering fiction if you happen to be in Vancouver, British Columbia. You can get your tickets for $15 ahead of time by clicking here or simply grab ’em at the door.
