Galaxy of Terror was far too scatter-shot for my taste.
That said, the movie does have it's moments. I enjoyed the various kills that occurred throughout the film, which were, admittedly, pretty outlandish. For example, in one scene, a female crew member battles against a maggot that’s grown to an enormous size. Inexplicably, this huge, worm-like creature manages to wrestle every stitch of clothing off of her body, and then, before doing away with the poor girl, it rapes her (that’s right, folks…raped by a giant maggot). Galaxy of Terror contains a hodge-podge of gory kill sequences such as this, but not one of them matched up well with any of the others; they just kinda "happened", with no real explanation as to why.
The special effects were, admittedly, quite good, but neither this, the cool kills or the impressive cast proved enough to save the film in the end. It was all just a bit too random, and by the time the movie finally got around to explaining everything, I didn’t even care anymore.
