In the distant future, Captain Larry Madison, the most heroic leader of the space fleet, has been sent on a mission to Lorigon, a far off planet known to be the galaxy’s greatest resource for Antalium, a precious metal needed to create weaponry. However, when they reach the planet, they discover that it’s overseen by a powerful computer which is capable of forcing all those near it to engage in mindless debauchery. Determined to overcome its effects, Madison and his crew wade through jungles and valleys in search of Antalium…but why does Lt. Sondra Richardson keep having strange sexual nightmares involving a well endowed beast?
An unfiltered product of everything which makes Italian sexploitation cinema legendary, this in-name-only “sequel” to Walerian Borowczyk’s notorious “erotic” fantasy, Alfonso Brescia’s (Naked Girl Killed in the Park) THE BEAST IN SPACE is a wild take on late 70s sci-fi, enhanced with bizarre peplum-esque plot twists and shocking hardcore sex, and starring Sirpa Lane (The Beast, Nazi Love Camp 27), Lucio Rosato (The Barbarians), and the future queen of 80s Italian smut, Marina Hedman (Satan’s Baby Doll)! Long overdue for Blu-ray, Peekarama has painstakingly restored the film from its never before scanned 16mm original negative and invites you to buckle up and blast off to the stars.
