Hi there and welcome!
So, I guess you’re asking – why a site devoted to the making of Saturn 3?
After all – wasn’t it awful?
Well, truth be told, the film has always held a peculiar fascination for me.
Call it a guilty pleasure if you will.
I had been putting together an extended post about the behind the scenes debacle which culminated in the cult classic 1980 sci-fi movie and had planned to post the article on my other movie review blog MOSSFILM http://mossfilm.wordpress.com/ But having spent weeks researching it (research based on magazine articles from the day and various other sources) it has blown out to a whopping 7,000 words (!) – so I’ve decided to dedicate another site entirely to this much maligned and derided, but fascinating production.
(oh yeah, and in case you’re wondering, the site takes its name from the film’s original tag line – ‘Some THING Is Wrong On Saturn 3’)
There has been so much speculation and false information about this troubled movie on the web – that I’ve taken it upon myself to delve into it ‘archaeologiclly’ and will hopefully provide the first truly comprehensive re-telling of exactly what went wrong.
(to the best of my current knowledge)
My aim with this site is to not only offer a place for fans to gather and hang out – but to also provide a serious forum for anyone who can offer verifiable information on the making of the film – and hopefully attract insight from people who actually worked on it.
(well, that’s the idea anyway)
Consider it an exercise in ‘cinematic archaeology’ – if you like.
So please, if you do have any comments or suggestions or would like to contribute factual and accurate information (from reliable sources) with regard to Saturn 3, or even just want to say hi – feel free to drop me an email at the address below:
