Planet of the Vampires

Planet of the Vampires

Planet of the Vampires (1965) is also known as Terrore Nello Spazio. (It’s an Italian sci-fi flick.) Even so, only half of this movie’s title is correct.

Two pricey spaceships, loaded with astronauts in work clothing, crash on a mysterious planet that has a lot of glowing steam and pointy rocks. The place looks unoccupied, but the planet’s residents are invisible. (That saved the film company a few bucks on crappy rubber masks.)

The crew of the Argos become possessed by these invis-o-beings and turn last call-hostile, beating each other up and down. Those who die during these point-counter points are reanimated with space herpes sores on their faces, and stalk those without space herpes.

A couple of the guys from Galliot, the other space ship, want to get the heckaroo outta there, and go about stealing Argos’ Meteor Rejector device, the thing that will allow them to navigate the pinball asteroid field they barely made it though on their way to Planet Boring in the first place.

The DVD box art shows giant skeletal vampires with icky faces attacking the crew. There are no such creatures in the movie, just astronauts covered in Saran Wrap™ running around and smacking each other. I wish I had a Crappy Horror Movie Rejector device installed on my TV.

  1. Fortunately, I do have a Crappy Horror Movie Rejector… YOU! On the flip side of the coin, you have to jump on the crap grenade for the rest of us, but we love ya for it! And while I often opt for some of the crap, it’s wholly expected and savored. Mmmmm…. crap.
