Star Crash : Italian Star Wars


untitledLike last month’s this film gets a little unfairly branded as the “Italian Star Wars” though premiering just one year behind Star Wars  they are obviously trying to cash in on the imagery and look of it as we can see in the poster.

A pair of space smugglers pick up a castaway who turns out to be the only survivor from a secret mission to destroy a mysterious superweapon designed by the evil Count Zartham. The smugglers are soon recruited by the Emperor to complete the mission, as well as to rescue the Emperor’s missing son…

This is good in it’s own right, particularly since we get an early David hasslehoff appearance and the always delightful Caroline Munro. It’s easy to find. there’s even a MST3K if you’re interested.
