Starring a.o. Zach Galligan, Bruce Campbell, Martin Kemp, ... Dutch subtitled edition released by Emporium Movies This is actually "Wax Worx 2". I dunno why Emporium Movies named it "Spaceshift". This edition has a blue gremlin-like creature on the cover so I expected a rip-off of Gremlins (also Zach Galligan plays the lead role, most known for Gremlins 1 & 2) since they are also ripping off/making a parody of other movies such like Frankenstein & Alien. I like the Alien-bit the most, looking similar but ... different (did I spark your interest just now?). Zach Galligan's character & his girlfriend are running away from the creatures of "Wax Worx 1" (which I didn't see) & end up in a vortex which shifts them in various alternative dimensions which happen to be other movies (don't you hate it when that happens? You're waiting for the bus and next thing you know you're in a Star Wars-like world!). The Bruce Campbell bit is very funny too. He's tied up with the flesh of his chest being eaten & bones sticking out ("Oh, it's only a fleshwound"). But all in all they lose too much time in some dimensions that aren't very interesting. Very chaotic movie. Emporium Movies used a vhs copy of this film as the master for their dvd release which is a constant factor with all Emporium Movies releases (their site is offline so I guess they're out of business). You're actually watching a video on dvd which has a certain charm.
