Battle Beyond the Stars


Jimmy T. Murakami & Roger Corman, USA, 1980, Shout! Factory, Cult

With art direction by a young James Cameron, a score by future Cameron collaborator James Horner (Aliens, Titanic), a screenplay by John Sayles (Lone Star), and co-directed by Roger Corman himself, Battle Beyond the Stars is a gem of the post-Star Wars space boom in B-movie filmmaking.

Shad (Richard Thomas of The Waltons and Summer of ‘42) must scour the cosmos to recruit mercenaries from different planets and cultures to save his peaceful home planet from the evil Sador (John Saxon, Blood Beach) Joining this magnificent band of marauders are the deadly Gelt (Robert Vaughn, Superman III), carefree Cowboy (George Peppard, The A-Team) and the Valkyrie Saint-Exmin (Sybil Danning, Chained Heat). 

All Cult Films at Mad Arts are recommended for an 18 + audience. Each movie runs on a 2-week cycle with 10 showings.
