99 on 99: “Dragon’s Domain”

99on99023bSPACE IS F-ING TERRIFYING! In a format breaker – flashbacks and narration, strong focus on guest Gianni Garko as tormented Tony Cellini – Koenig is inexplicably devoted to a guy that led a disastrous planetary probe. A shrieking Cthulhu turned his shipmates into dessicated corpses? Yes, and it’s SCARY AS SH**! The spaceships’ graveyard and cobwebbed probe are eerie visuals, but reliable actor Michael Sheard is wasted, the probe appears far from its original position with no explanation, and the literary parallels are too heavily underlined. He’s “very happy to know he put new life into an old myth?” Doubt it!
