Starship Invasion Captain Rameses and his Legion of the Winged Serpent brigade are out to claim Earth for their dying race. Out to save Earth is an alien guard patrol located in the Bermuda Triangle, the League of Races. LOR leaders warn Rameses that he’s breaking galactic treaty rules. The alien villain responds by launching an invasion which telepathically drives Earthlings to suicide. The LOR implore UFO expert Professor Duncan to help them. Eventually, the two alien forces battle. Will the Earth be saved? We know they are there – advanced beyond our imagination. Why have they come?
A shlock masterpiece!!!
Starship InvasionI remember seeing this during Passover Holidays (Easter) at my local cinema. It was marketed as a ‘Star Wars’ knock-off. I picked it up 20 years later in a 2nd hand bin on VHS. THIS FILM IS HILARIOUS DRECK!! Basically this race of aliens try to take over the Earth by mind control by causing earthlings to commit suicide!! Mixing UFO nonsense with ludicrous ‘Star Wars’ mythology and some demented ideas, I will never forget sitting in a cinema full of teens and pre-teens, and watching in horror as the main actress has her mind controlled, and she proceeds to slash her wrists! Kids were screaming in horror, and the projectionist had to stop the film!! It was truly one of those classic cinema experiences that people just don’t experience in today’s disgusting cineplex wasteland!
A fun genre piece..interesting concept
A film with some great special effects shots and a few not so great. A film with neat ideas yet, crisp film cinematography and color. This is one of those popcorn and coke matinee films which i saw a zillion times when it ran on WGN and WKBD in syndication. The film features well known actors. In another version I thought I read CHRISTOPHER LEE says his lines. There may have been another version. STARSHIP INVASIONS came out as a “b” movie yet garnered a cult following on tv. It also was one of those post star wars films that capitalized off UFO myths tied in with ancient astronauts like HANGAR 18. All of this makes for a fun story and has been fodder for years for writers searching for fiction story material. With some revamping the film could have been better. I sense budgetary constraints. As a boy I liked it and loved the escapism. Fans of older science fiction will enjoy this piece for a fun afternoon or evening. Fans of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA don’t expect DAVID LEAN quality here. Expect escapism.
