"Hell has been relocated" to Shout! Factory, and I mean that in the kindest way possible! Bruce D. Clark's infamous sci-fi/horror flick Galaxy of Terror has been added to the company's Roger Corman's Cult Classics roster, and is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Special features include several great featurettes including commentary from cast and crew, interviews with Roger Corman, Robert Englund, Sid Haig and more, as well as a detailed look at the film's memorable sets and spacescapes. James Cameron lends his time to the extras as well (find out why below), along with an inside look behind the FX and soundtrack (from composer Barry Schrader). You also get the typical extras like trailers, photo/art galleries, and a peek at the original screenplay. Shout! Factory's reversible DVD cover and full color booklet with an intro from former Rue Morgue Editor-In-Chief Jovanka Vuckovic tops things off.

The film follows the crew of the starship Quest to the planet Morganthus to search for the missing crew members of the starship Remus after a crash landing. During their exploration, the team encounters further catastrophe in a mysterious pyramid where other deadly encounters await them. There's also worm rape. The cast of Galaxy of Terror is an interesting lot -- many of them achieved greater fame after Corman's film. The lineup includes: Edward Albert (The House Where Evil Dwells, The Domino Principle), Erin Moran (TV's Happy Days, Joanie Loves Chachi), Ray Walston (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, TV's My Favorite Martian, Picket Fences), Robert Englund (if I have to tell you who this guy is, you are probably reading the wrong website), Zalman King (Wild Orchid, TV's Red Shoe Diaries), Bernard Behrens (The Changeling, The Man With Two Brains), Grace Zabriskie (The Grudge, TV's Twin Peaks, Big Love), and cult favorite Sid Haig (The Devil's Rejects, Kill Bill - Vol 2).
