  • DVD COMMENTS: Shamelessly mixing elements of Star Trek, the films of Walerian Borowczyk and Roman-style decadence, The Beast in Space is a one-of-a-kind flick that could only be found at the Grindhouse. Much thanks is due to Severin for uncovering this magnum opus of sleaze, although certain elements of this DVD release are lacking their usual pizzaz. The print and sound quality are top-notch for such a rarity, making you forget that the hardcore scenes are blatant inserts featuring other actors besides the leads. On the other hand, the English subtitles and Italian dialogue are a bit of a downer, if only because the cast is obviously speaking in English and many of the subs run much longer than necessary. Extras are also quite limited (probably due to lack of resources rather than laziness), offering up a "hardcore trailer" and several deleted sex scenes, including an absolutely shocking snippet of the beast ejaculating from its massive rubber phallus. As with everything released by Severin, it's definitely worth a look, but you may have a better shot at finding the unrated version. Sadly, the distributor of this DVD (Ryko, through parent company Warner Bros.) recently pulled this from production due to the unsimulated sexuality. Try your local videostore (I rented this from TLA Video in Philadelphia) or grab one of the remaining copies at Diabolik DVDs. Mdeapo
