Widescreen English subtitled Italian language presentation of director Mario Bava’s fabulous “Planet of the Vampires” (or “Terrore Nello Spazio”) from 1965. Barry Sullivan leads a crew of human-like space explorers who happen upon possession, madness and death on a nameless planet in a run-down part of the galaxy that nobody goes to anymore. Many of its elements would be re-fitted by Dan O’Bannon, Ron Shussett, Ridley Scott and H.R. Giger for ALIEN in 1979. Examining those relationships is part of a larger conceptual project I am pursuing exploring the influence which ALIEN had upon my own evolution as an artist. Posting a low-rez copy of the full length Italian print here after several viewers following the project requested a look.
