SPACE WARS: THE QUEST FOR THE DEEPSTAR with Paré & Gruner Hits Theaters Starting Today!

If you’re looking for a good ‘ol cheesy 80’s style sci-fi flick reminiscent of what you’d get in a drive in on a Saturday night then let me turn your attention to Space Wars: Quest for the DEEPSTAR. Not only is it packing major action star cred with Michael Pare and Olivier Gruner, it’s got some pretty solid visuals for a low key indie affair. Keep in mind that this film isn’t for everyone as it’s a niche film but if you have a good attitude and are longing for the olden days, then check this one out as it hits select theaters starting today!
