The Trailer Dump, Issue no. 7

The Ice Pirates

  • What a cast! John Carradine, Ron Pearlman, Angelica Huston and Robert Ulrich!
  • The wide shots of the domed city is actually footage from Logan's Run.
  • The sport the pirates watch over their lunch is footage from Rollerball.
  • This is only Ron Pearlman's second film after A Quest for Fire.
  • When I first subscribed to Netflix streaming, this is the first film I watched.


  • Actress Dorothy Stratton, who played the titular (har har) Galaxina, was Playboy's Playmate of the year, 1980. Sadly, she was killed by her jealous husband in a murder/suicide. She was only 20.
  • Laser sound effects were lifted right out of the original Battlestar Galactica tv show and shipboard door effects taken right from Star Trek.
  • Received a Blu Ray release this past March as a double feature with Crater Lake Monster.

Ator, The Fighting Eagle

  • This film contains a lot of O'Keeffe. How much O'Keeffe? Miles O'Keeffe. (sorry, couldn't help it)
  • This is the first in a series of 4 films featuring Ator by occult director Joe D'Amato.
  • The second film in the series was spoofed on Mystery Science Theater 3000 under it's American title, Cave Dwellers.

Until next time, here's hoping you spend Saturday night at the movies, who cares what you go and see.
