Star Crash Movie TrailerThe Pitch: Apparently in 1979, New World Pictures producer Roger Corman picked up the film to see if the market was viable for a low budget space opera. The result is a ridiculous Star Wars rip-off titled Star Crash, featuring a lightsaber battle featuring David Hasselhoff (seen below). The movie also features Christopher Plummer as The Emperor (I kid you not). Director Lewis Coates went on to direct the 1983 film Hercules starring Lou Ferrigno.
