Galaxy Of Terror (1981) Movie Poster

"As a lone spaceship proceeds on its long voyage across space, the crew are surprised to encounter a strange pyramid form. Surprise turns to horror as one by one, they discover that their darkest nightmares are all starting to become real."

This b horror sci fi flick is probably best known for the following awesome bit of James Cameron trivia found at imdb.

"Unit director James Cameron got maggots to wriggle on a severed arm by passing an electric current through it, impressing a couple of producers and earning him his next job. And so a career was born."

That's right, electrified maggots on a severed arm are responsible for Titanic..

Enjoy this scene where Sid Haig is murdered by his own amputated arm with a glass throwing star.

And you might think less of Freddy Krueger when you see him scream like a little girl at the end of this trailer.
