Battle Beyond the Stars is part of Cult Films at Mad Arts, a weekly showcase of experimental movies that are too raw, weird, experimental, or transgressive for a general audience, but have a celebrated, or infamous reputation among film enthusiasts. This curated selection showcases films that defined genres and pioneered new techniques in filmmaking. These films straddle the line between art and film, in the sense that they were made to satisfy something other than ticket sales.

All Cult Films at Mad Arts are recommended for an 18 + audience. Each movie runs on a 2-week cycle with 10 showings. 

Battle Beyond the Stars

Jimmy T. Murakami & Roger Corman, USA, 1980, Shout! Factory, Cult

With art direction by a young James Cameron, a score by future Cameron collaborator James Horner (Aliens, Titanic), a screenplay by John Sayles (Lone Star), and co-directed by Roger Corman himself, Battle Beyond the Stars is a gem of the post-Star Wars space boom in B-movie filmmaking.

Shad (Richard Thomas of The Waltons and Summer of ‘42) must scour the cosmos to recruit mercenaries from different planets and cultures to save his peaceful home planet from the evil Sador (John Saxon, Blood Beach) Joining this magnificent band of marauders are the deadly Gelt (Robert Vaughn, Superman III), carefree Cowboy (George Peppard, The A-Team) and the Valkyrie Saint-Exmin (Sybil Danning, Chained Heat).
