Cosmos: War of the Planets (1978)

Cosmos: War of the Planets (also released in Europe as Year Zero: War In Space) is a 1978 Italian film directed by Alfonso Bresciaand starring John Richardson. It is considered a remake of the 1965 film Planet of the Vampires. It was also released as War of the Planets (not to be confused with the 1965 Antonio Margheriti film of that name), and also as Cosmo 2000, as well as Cosmo: Planet Without a Name.

The 4 films in Alfonso Brescia's 1978 sci-fi series are Star Odyssey (1978), Cosmos: War of the Planets (1978, aka Year Zero War in Space), Battle in Interstellar Space (1978, aka Battle of the Stars) and War of the Robots (1978, aka Reactor).



  1. Still waiting for you to do the 1959 soviet sf film:I Was a Satellite of the Sun/Ya byl sputnikom solntsa,it runs for a little over an hour and is really like a docu drama [51:40-53:15]

  2. I found a very obscure soviet space movie from 1985 called Vozvrashchenie s orbity,the plots a bit like Marooned or Gravity with an accident in space with lives on the line,very realistic,interestingly the helmet used in the spacewalk scene is the same one that we saw so many of in the soviet film Moon Rainbow and which I think are probably real [49:09-56:00] [1:13:50-1:17:10]
    I even found an east german poster on ebay
