When I was young, I saw a movie from space. I remember just this scene: bloody red sand, astronauts building a white oxygen tent. Inside, they take off their helmets, and from behind the tent window jumps up a skeleton. An astronaut lady starts to scream. For sure it was a really old movie, because of common spacesuits.

I'm finding probably 8 years.

    What does "I'm finding probably 8 years" mean? You watched it 8 years ago, or you've been searching for 8 years? What about "common spacesuits" - can you describe what you mean and how it implies the movie must be really old? Also, what is a "really old" movie to you - 1930s? 1950s? 1970s?

Maybe Moontrap, 1988?

There's a scene where a NASA astronaut (Walter Koenig) and a female alien are in spacesuits, set up a white igloo air shelter, and are then confronted by a dead Bruce Campbell popping up in a window.

It's on Youtube. Shelter sequence at 1:05.

It's a bad movie.

  • Having watched Babylon 5, I can't see a Walter Koenig character as anything other than a slimeball now.

    @Randal'Thor Well, one of Koenig's reasons for taking that role was so people would stop seeing his characters as Chekov, so... mission accomplished?

  • Bonus points for using some 14/2 Teck cable as the alien tentacles, that saved the budget right there. Commented Aug 14, 2022 at 15:28
