Galaxy of Horrors (2017) Movie Review


Galaxy of Horror (2017) is an anthology that stitches together a series of sci-fi and horror shorts, each offering a unique glimpse into the realms of the unknown and the terrifying. The film’s structure, reminiscent of classic anthologies, presents a variety of narratives that range from the gruesome to the visually stunning, showcasing the talents of various directors and writers.

The central narrative revolves around a man trapped in a malfunctioning cryogenic pod, forced to watch these stories unfold as his life support dwindles. This framing device is a clever way to bind the disparate tales, though some viewers may find the lead story somewhat lacking in engagement.

The segments themselves are a mixed bag, with some standing out for their inventive storytelling and others for their impressive low-budget effects. Standout segments like “Eden” and “They Will All Die in Space” offer compelling visuals and thought-provoking concepts that challenge the viewer’s imagination. Others, such as “Flesh Computer” and “Eveless,” delve into more gruesome territory, which may not be to everyone’s taste but certainly add to the film’s horror credentials.

The anthology format is inherently hit or miss, and Galaxy of Horror (2017) is no exception. Some stories resonate more strongly than others, and the quality of acting and direction can vary significantly from one short to the next. However, the film does a commendable job of paying homage to its sci-fi and horror roots, with clear nods to genre classics and a palpable love for the material from its creators.

For fans of indie cinema and experimental storytelling, Galaxy of Horror offers a showcase of creativity and a testament to what can be achieved with passion and limited resources. While it may not have the polish of big-budget productions, it stands out as a labor of love that offers enough intrigue and variety to warrant a watch.
