Watch Assignment: Outer Space
- 1 hr 13 min
Originally released a year earlier in Italian, this unusual deep space adventure by director Anthony Margheriti and his colleague Anthony Dawson recounts a tale set in the distant future, in 2116 A.D. A dedicated journalist named Ray Peterson (played by Rik Van Nutter) boards a rocket ship to meet up with an orbiting space station run by a Commander (Alain Dijon). He hopes to spend ten days studying a phenomenon caused by radiation, but the plot unfolds as he clashes with his hosts. Today, many of the special affects appear rather dated, yet the movie has developed numerous loyal fans.
