We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

I actually REALLY love that plot. Could make for a very intense nightmare.

Never seen it. It's, again, post-Argento decline which is never a good thing. You can probably count on Asia to turn out a good performance (it gets really awkward when his grows-up-to-be-a-rapist daughter who he constantly sexualizes on-screen is the best part of an Argento move). I don't hear tons about it. A lot of people who watch it seem to forget it skull

Shame, the plot is actually really cool and could've made for a great film.

To be fair, Argento's early-mid-90s movies were mostly still pretty watchable. Phantom of the Opera (1998, so two years after this) is when he began to actually suck and create unwatchable garbage
