Dir. Bret Piper, 1986

"I am the king, I am the king
One dead marine through the hatch
Scratch and scrape this heavenly body
Every inch of winning skin
There's garbage in honeys sack again"
- The Birthday Party // Junkyard
Veteren character actor Matt Mitler (THE MUTILATOR, BASKET CASE 2) plays Harry Trent (a role he would reprise two years later in Piper's MUTANT WAR) a spy who steals a spaceship. While attempting to return to Earth he finds the controls are malfunctioning and he is unable to land. After a grueling five years in orbit he's come back around and is able to descend to the planets fertile surface. Upon his return he finds his beloved homeworld has been taken over. Hailed as a hero and savior he's tasked with saving the way of life he holds so dear - if only he can figure out how.
Director Brett Piper (A NYMPHOID BARBARIAN IN DINOSAUR HELL) cut his teeth in the early 80's and continues to this day. A jack of all trades Piper's work truly shines when he's able to showcase his love of practical effects gets it's time in the sun. In GALAXY DESTROYER alone crab monsters, spaceships, and melting faces abound. Perfect spring midnight fare!
