Late Night Movie House of Crap: Pia Zadora in Rock Aliens

Pia Zadora. Of her career I can only say this: She had one.

1999 Frasier (TV series) Jill (voice)
1995 Favorite Deadly Sins (TV movie) Pia Zadora
1994 Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult Pia Zadora
1990 Mother Goose Rock ‘n’ Rhyme (TV movie) Little Miss Muffet
1989 Troop Beverly Hills Pia Zadora
1988 Hairspray Beatnik Chick
1984 Pajama Tops (TV movie) Babette Latouche
1984 Voyage of the Rock Aliens Dee Dee
1983 The Lonely Lady Jerilee Randall
1982 Fake-Out Bobbie Warren
1982 Butterfly Kady Tyler
1964 Santa Claus Conquers the Martians Girmar

That’s it. From that’s her career. (Notice that three of her credits are as herself!) I left nothing out, although she does sing and put out 7 or 8 albums and toured.
I hope she sings better than she acts. Can you explain her appeal, which I assume she must have had although I can’t see it? I admit she is kind of cute, but not cute enough to want to see her sing or act. A holiday commercial with a puppy around Christmas might be enough.

And now, as recommended by author T E Stazyk of, here is Pia Zadora in Voyage of the Rock Aliens. It is so 1980’s it may make you sick.

And it isn’t just Ms. Zadora, the suck is spread around to the rest of the cast.

There’s more, too much more, on YouTube, but I’ve subjected you to enough.

    Hey, thanks for the attribution. But I hasten to point out to anyone who might be interested that my recommendation of Voyage of the Rock Aliens in no way reflects on my writing skills!

    That’s a great montage of clips and it shows how that movie basically ripped off just about every 80s trope from Duran Duran to Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Flashdance to Bachelor Party, as nauseam! (and did it badly)

      Lol, nice point. Now had you written the movie…

    This makes ” Xanadu ” & ” Mannequin ” look like Shakespearean theater or ” A Tale of Two Cities “. My computer is about to melt – down after this.
