Torture Porn…IN SPACE!

Fellow Icons of Fright/WickedFX guru Jsyn reminded me I really do miss the “______IN SPACE” horror movies. You know, where every horror franchise goes once it’s worn out it’s welcome and there’ just no where left for it to go. “Hellraiser” went there. “Jason” visited the black abyss of space. Even the Leprechaun and The Critters blasted off into cold outer reaches of the solar system.

So what about the so-called “torture porn” genre. Box-office flops, a public generally tired of the same-old thing film after film. It’s not looking good for this little subgenre. So…what do we have to look forward to?

Here’s a few ideas I have to keep the genre going.

Space Turistas: A Russian mafia-like group sells tickets to the International Space Station. Steals organs in zero-gravity torture surgery:

The Right Saw: 6 former NASA test pilots wake up, trapped, in a former Air Force base.

Captivity Capsule: Due to a communication error Elisha Cuthbert is launched into space in grimy, out-moded NASA technology circa 1965. Never comes back.

And of course, this one needs no description:
