Believe it or not, I didn’t see my first Full Moon Features film until just a few years ago. Since then, I’ve watched as many entries in the company’s filmography as I can get my hands on. The latest to scratch off my list is Ken Dixon’s Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity.
After a narrow escape, Daria and Tisa crash land on a strange planet. They are greeted and welcomed by a charming host, Zed, and his android servants. It doesn’t take long, however, for the girls to realize they are merely prisoners in Zed’s sick world.
I love films from all of Full Moon’s eras, but the ones dating back to the 80s are always the best of the bunch. I find the late 80s and early 1990s to be a time when Charles Band and co. were still taking themselves seriously and producing films that actually deserved the cult followings they amassed.
Released in 1987, Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity isn’t your run-of-the-mill sci-fi flick. It features beautiful, scantily clad women who are more than just eye candy, and a fun script that, thankfully, never crosses over into territory too hokey to enjoy.
Our main protagonists, Tisa and Daria, are played by Cindy Beal and Elizabeth Kaitan (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood), respectively. Not only are they jaw-droppingly gorgeous, but they are incredibly intelligent, as well.
Throughout the film’s rather short 74 minute runtime, the duo are seen piloting foreign spacecrafts, rigging booby traps in Zed’s jungle maze, and operating some heavy artillery. This is all a far cry from what one would see in a film from Full Moon in this day and age!
Both Beal and Kaitan play their roles rather impressively and I really enjoyed the performance delivered by Don Scriber, as the villainous Zed. Throw scream queen Brinke Stevens into the mix and you have yourself a wonderfully well-rounded 80s cast sure to please all genre fans!
Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity features subservient androids, zombie-like mutants, and other alien beings. Thankfully all are created using practical make-up effects and designs, some of which were created by the late great John Carl Buechler.
Mark this one off as another solid entry in the decades-spanning filmography of Full Moon Features. Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity features a talented cast, a fun script, attractive half-naked women, robots, aliens, and monsters. What else could you ask for?
Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity is available now on Blu-ray from Full Moon Features. You can also catch this sexy sci-fi cult classic streaming on Full Moon Direct. Grab some beers and some buddies and give this one a watch.
I give this movie a final rating of 4 immature bickering androids out of 5.
