This Alfonso Brescia ... errr ... Al Bradley, flick is like a Dickens novel brought to life, in as much as it is the best of, and the worst of, so many things.
A love of Italian science-fiction schlock is essential to fully appreciate the magnificent badness that is The Beast in Space; a movie whose highlight is the rape of a female astronaut by a manifestation of Pan.
Ironically, other than some fellatio close-ups, the Pan footage, with its impressively functional mega cock and walnut tight balls, is the only truly "hardcore" intercourse in the classic spaghetti sci-fi epic; but there's plenty of naked humping, boob groping and pubic hair!
This Italian-language space confection has it all: bar fights and pick-ups, Uranus milk, groovy unisex space suits, a castle, an orgy, a cloven-footed satyr and a planet-running computer that looks more like a giant robot.
Retailing: Much fun for the fan of schlocky 1980s spaghetti science-fiction and pubic hair.
