Giacomo Rossi Stuart stars as Cmdr. Rod Jackson, the leader of a team of astronauts who are sent to investigate a rogue planet that is causing many disasters on Earth.
Ombretta Colli is Lt. Terry Sanchez, the love of Jackson's life and also a member of his team. Jackson is an arrogant son of a bitch most of the time, but he does get the job done.
The special effects are ok, but nothing special. The asteroid turns out to be a living organism that kills and devours several crew members and it looks like the earth is doomed until a last minute decision is made to completely explode the asteroid into thousand of pieces.
This movie has always been a favorite of mine for reasons i really don't know. I guess I just saw it at the right time on VHS many years ago. It works for me, and to be honest Ombretta is pretty damn sexy. This was put on a double bill DVD with "Creation Of The Humanoids" which is reviewed below.
