Quick Movie Review: Star Slammer (1987)

Have you ever thought to yourself "Boy, I sure would like to watch a women's prison movie, but instead of it being set on Earth, I'd like to see some weird alien shit too?" Well, then Star Slammer (aka Prison Ship, according to IMDb) is the movie for you. But be warned, it's probably not as exploitative as you'd expect. Yes, there's some weird girl on girl hazing and a pointless "change in front of the group" scene, but you're also treated to a score that rips off from Star Wars extensively as well as some Jawa clones that make the Goblins in Troll 2 look like Tom Savini put them together. It really is not a great movie, but then you get treated to a fight scene between two women space prisoners and a children's show host who looks like Venom's ugly step child. On the real, this is a dumb movie, but it's also completely worth watching if you want to see some of the strangest Star Wars homages in the world as well as some weird space prison action. I will be honest, I wasn't expecting a women's space prison movie when I added this to my NetBox queue, I thought it was more of a play on "Starjammers" which is pretty pornographic on its own now that I think about it. Anyway, it's worth a peep for sure, especially if you have the glory that is Netflix on Xbox or your computer.
