    It's been years since I've seen this; I forgot how lovely Farrah looks :b

    But what an unlikely place for this movie to end up; I didn't know Saturn 3 was an independent film. But you'd think they could show it in widescreen.[​IMG]

    I wish they would re-do the DVD. This is one of my favorite old Sci-Fi movies.

    She did look amazing in this didn't she? Too bad it was a schlocky movie. [​IMG] Fun for "bad-sci-fi" night though! [​IMG]

    I remember that "Hector" REALLY gave me the creeps when I was younger. (I'd forgotten that Harvey Kietel was the bad guy in this! Although his voice was dubbed for some reason...)

    Yeah, I think IFC bends their rules as to what exactly constitutes an independent film. While looking at their programming, I think they choose films that have an independent feel to it (ie, a plot you wouldn't find in a standard studio picture, shot on a low budget) rather than the company that distributed it. After all, I saw a showing of Escape From New York on IFC a couple of weeks ago.

    Odd that Saturn 3 wasn't shown in widescreen, though--usually their films always are. Perhaps they couldn't obtain it?
