      Even Alien had spinoffs

      Galaxy of Terror is one of those movies you remember watching and wouldn't mind seeing it again, but are too ashamed to admit to anyone that you actually watched it. This movie has some heavy influence from Alien between the plot and the sets built for it. Some of the sets are actually really good while others seem very lacking. Acting is very over-the-top and you can probably guess who one character is before you get to the end, which they try to keep secret (no spoilers here). The idea was to see how people would react to their own fears if they were confronted by them, however most of them don't seem to make sense. Overall, a fun "horror in space" movie that will look nice next to others such as Event Horizon.

      Entertaining characters and McDonald's boxes

      A fun and fascinating B-movie with a memorable premise. If Corman didn't force this to be rushed the plot could have been expanded some more, especially with the ending. A good start for people who have never experienced the magic of Roger Corman.
