Alfonso Brescia – La Bestia Nello Spazio aka Beast in Space (1980)
In 1975, European sex symbol Sirpa Lane shocked the world with her performance as a maiden defiled by a ferociously aroused animal in the erotic classic The Beast. Five years later, the beautiful-but-doomed actress would plummet from arthouse to grindhouse in this insanely unofficial outer space ‘sequel’ packed with rampant sex, cheezy effects, barnyard passions and yet another graphic ravaging by a hugely-endowed man-beast. Marina Hedman (Satan’s Baby Doll) and Venantino Venantini (Black Emanuelle) co-star in this jaw-dropping intergalactic epic that combines the immortal ’80s Italian genres of sleazy sci-fi and depraved sexual saga, now fully restored from the original film lab negative purchased at a Rome bankruptcy auction. The story gets under way as Captain Larry (Vassili Karis) stops off at a local watering hole for a cool glass of Uranus Milk. After striking up a conversation with stunning blonde Sondra (Lane), Captain Larry is confronted by an angry merchant named Juan who had been attempting to work his charm on the girl. A barroom brawl ensues, and after Captain Larry defeats Juan he swipes a vial from him and takes Sondra home. The next day, Captain Larry receives word that the vial contained a highly valuable space mineral. The Star Fleet wants Captain Larry to travel to the planet where the mineral was found and bring back more, and they’ve assembled a skilled crew to accompany him on the mission. Sondra is a member of Captain Larry’s crew, but she’s distracted from her mission by recurring dreams where she’s wandering through the woods and ravaged by a hirsute stranger. Upon arriving on the planet, Captain Larry discovers that it is ruled by an enormous robot that possesses the only known traces of the prized space mineral. Now, in order to accomplish his mission, Captain Larry and his crew will be forced to do battle with a powerful race of aliens that will fight to the death to protect their precious natural resource.
