I have been searching for a film I saw years ago on Channel 5 when it was the new kid on the block.
The film revolved around a moon or an asteroid on which a monster was trapped. A band of astronauts are sent in and all hell breaks loose. An ALIEN wannabe that never quite succeeds, it did have its charms and forms part of what I would call the moon monster sub-genre of films.
Whilst searching for this film I have come across many other members of the moon monster sub-genre, many cheap xeroxes of ALIEN and earlier remote horrors like the Thing From Another World. Here are a few VHS collectables to check out on You Tube.....or not!
TITAN FIND aka Creature 1985
[set on Titan]
TRACK OF THE MOON BEAST 1976
[a sort of werewolf flick and set on Earth]
SATURN 3 1980
[set on Saturn's 3rd moon]
ATTACK ON TITAN 2015
[not set on Titan as I thought, this film deals with a race of Titans attacking Japan but it looked interesting so I left it in]
an honorable mention goes to
THE INTRUDER WITHIN 1981
[not set on a moon but in Antarctica]
and so to the film I was actually searching for
WITHIN THE ROCK 1996
[set on a moon about to collide with Earth]
Which monsters on moons films would you include readers?
