This movie scared the bejesus out of me when I was ten, and I just re-watched it.  To summarize:

The Master summons a Crack Team of hardened Space Veterans and one Newbie to find the Team That Went Missing Out In Space.  The Crack Team never finds the Team That Went Missing… that whole plot line gets dropped like a hot potato.  No surprise when the Newbie Dies First.  The Crack Team are all destroyed by their own Worst Fears made flesh via some unexplained Worst Fears Made Flesh Device.  Everybody dies, except for the guy with the Power Mustache, who must face off with zombie versions of all his own dead comrades.  In the end, Power Mustache defeats his undead crew and all three color schemes and himself becomes The Master.

The screenshot features the actress who played Joanie from Happy Days mere moments before her skull gets crushed into a bloody pulp by tentacles.

The movie is called Galaxy of Terror, a Roger Corman flick you’ve never heard of, even though the budget was $700,000–and that’s 1981 dollars folks.  Today, that amount is like a trillion dollars, or something.  This flick is not quite worthy of a Golden Turd award, but tantalizingly close.

Haven’t seen this movie yet.  It ranked 57% on the Tomatometer, so it’s obviously not for everyone, the Tentacular Awesomeness not withstanding. And Kevin Bacon is in it, so how could it not be good? Everything is better with Bacon!

I’ll give this flick a watch and post an update sometime in the near future.

Here’s the official trailer:
