Space Raiders (1983) - (Vince Edwards) US one-sheet poster

This is a 27" x 41" US poster for the 1983 Howard R. Cohen film Space Raiders AKA Star Child produced by Roger Corman, written by Howard R. Cohen and starring Vince Edwards as Hawk. The film was criticized for its reuse of special effects footage and music from the 1980 Jimmy T. Murakami film Battle beyond the Stars, also produced by Roger Corman. Plot summary: Captain C. F. "Hawk" Hawkens is a former space service colonel who has become a pirate. His mission is to lead his crew on a raid to steal a corporate space freighter. When they steal it they do not realize the stolen ship has aboard a ten-year-old stowaway named Peter [David Mendenhall]. Peter's father instigates a search for him using a robot battle cruiser that can track him with an identity tag he is wearing. Moreover, some bounty hunters also soon detect Peter's presence and begin an effort to capture him so they can collect a ransom.

Cast and crew: Howard R. Cohen, David Mendenhall, Patsy Pease, Roger Corman, Vince Edwards, Thom Christopher, Luca Bercovici, Drew Snyder, Ray Stewart, George Dickerson, Michael Miller, Virginia Kiser, Don Washburn, William Boyett, Howard Dayton, Dick Miller, Elizabeth Charlton, Suzan Hollis, Laura Coles
