Special Program: They Wanted To See Something Different

Terrore nello spazio

Planet of the Vampires
Mario Bava
I, ESP, USA 1965
88 min

A dark gravitational power forces the space ship Argos to land on the fog-shrouded planet Aura, where the crew finds the lost space ship Galliot and its cruelly killed crew. The astronauts realize that Aura is inhabited by disembodied aliens that are obviously determined to zero in on their lives. As far as content and especially form are concerned, Mario Bava’s Italian low-budget production TERRORE NELLO SPAZIO is the secret prototype for Ridley Scott’s ALIEN and, consequently, for his current prequel PROMETHEUS.
