I don’t know how I missed this movie when it opened in 1979. Thanks to JetCity Improv’s bad-movie-with-faked-dialog show I had chance to see it in all its spectacular awfulness. The hero, Stella Star, wears a space bikini throughout most of the film, and the bad guy has a kind of Bozo the Clown coiffure:
A young David Hasselhoff has a role in this. It’s got everything. It’s got a 300 foot-high evil robot (female), space torpedos with men inside them, a big floating tentacled head, and much more. It’s worth noting that there’s a rainbow of pastel colors throughout the galaxy, too. Get all the details at a Starcrash fan site. There’s one here. Watch the space torpedo men–the “man-pedos,” as JetCity called them if you dare try a video clip. Note the plate glass windows in the spaceship–a design flaw that only evil-doers would come up with.
