I'm trying to rediscover a (presumably low-budget) sci-fi movie from around the 1980's that I saw most of by coincidence. Even 15+ years ago it was not well known, I doubt it was ever in U.S. theaters and might have originally been a non-U.S. film and dubbed in English, the copy I saw was low quality, maybe really worn VHS?
It might have taken place on a crashed spaceship, possibly surrounded by some sort of dome or forcefield that was possible to burrow underneath.
For a large portion of the movie (I'd say at least 30-45 minutes), the cast who have "awoken" from some sort of cryo/sleeper pods (like bunk beds recessed into the wall and "closed" with plexiglass) are just talking to each other about their predicament and how they "still can't move" because of the cryo/sleep while a mostly unseen monster enters their sleeping chamber, breaks the glass to attack someone, then leaves - multiple times.
They eventually are able to move, fiddle with electronics - maybe an intercom - get weapons, there is some sort of sci-fi shootout towards the end, and I think someone crawled through a tunnel under the dome.
I realize it's a long shot, obviously I've tried to figure it out myself:
- Tried google searches
- Read a ton of lists of movies and IMDB pages for amnesia, sci-fi cult movies, and many similar topics
Hopefully this sounds familiar to someone?
Edit: included that this was low-budget, probably 1980's, and was never well-known. Added a few more details that have come back.
Update: Haven't found the movie, accepted answer.
Update: It's called "Terrarium" (2003) aka "War of the Planets" ("a Mike Conway film"). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0397679/
