Wikipedia wrote:The film is an American adapted and edited version of the Soviet science fiction movie Planeta Bur (Planet of the Storms) directed by Pavel Klushantsev, with Curtis Harrington filming extra scenes featuring Basil Rathbone and American actors for the US/English speaking market. In the story, it is 2020 and the Moon has been colonized. After traveling 200,000,000 miles, the first group of men land on Venus, a prehistoric world, where the crew are attacked by various monsters, plants, etc.

But with 1965 eyes this is an edge-of-your-seat adventure into unknown worlds, where all things are possible! So pop your white kernel popcorn and drizzle on plenty of warm melted butter, and don't forget your 1965 mindset when you sit down to watch this vision into the year 2020 and the exploration of Venus. The plot and the special effects are completely ridiculous . . . and yet I enjoyed every second of the movie. In 1965 this was our brave peek into the year 2020, and what might have been our future. Are men from Mars and women from Venus? The last minutes of this adventure in space will at least clear up the Venus part, oh Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!
