Since my early teens I've had this memories of a few scenes from what looked like a low-budget 80's movie or TV show.

It starts with a family(parents and two teenage children) driving down a packed highway. Their car starts to float up, apparently caught by a tractor beam. They are engulfed by a gigantic spaceship. They are then separated and some of them gets almost eaten by an alien or something. They are then introduced to a queen- a female humanoid with very stylish clothes.

Beyond that I remember only fragments- for example, I remember a small shuttle dropping one of the humans on a very green planet...where he is supposed to deactivate a robot or something.

For the past 10 years I have been obsessed with these images, I don't know if it was a real movie or just something I dreamt up as a child reading sci-fi comics.

1 Answer 1


If you are fuzzy on some of the details, you MIGHT be thinking of Mom and Dad Save the World. Near the beginning, they dragged off into space, and eventually to another planet, via some kind of tractor beam, while in their station wagon.

  • Definitely NOT this. They get pulled to a new planet entirely. Commented Mar 8, 2017 at 17:52
  • @KingofNES ...but, in this film they do get pulled to a new planet. Did you read the description linked?
