source
Planet of the Vampires (Italian: Terrore nello spazio) is a 1965 Italian science fiction horror film directed by Mario Bava.

was based on an Italian language science fiction short story, Renato Pestriniero's "One Night of 21 Hours".
some critics suggested that the film's narrative details and visual design appeared to have been a major influence on Ridley Scott's Alien (1979).
