Review: Forbidden World (1982)

I kinda like it when the two female scientists escapes from the monster, get into a shower together and discuss what they do next.

An intergalactic bounty hunter arrives on the planet Xarbia to help out with an experiment gone wrong. A group of scientists tries to solve a galactic food crisis by creating a new life-form full of protein. But they created a monster and have to destroy it.

A full-blown Corman-produced exploitation set in space. You’ve got the obligatory monster, explosions, tits and gore. I’ve got to admit I find these flicks very entertaining. It has a lot of flaws, but also flare. It would have gotten half a score more if the big teeth monster was just a little bit less cheezy.

The shout factory release is awesome. You got an additional dvd with the director’s cut (which was longer and had more humour to it). Documentaries, interviews and audio commentary. Beautiful!
