A team of astronauts crashes on the surface of Venus. Accompanied by their robot, they
explore the surface and end up destroying the Venusian God. This film is also known as
"The Gill Women" and "The Gill Women of Venus". The film began life as a Soviet-produced
work. An American producer then added some new footage and changed the credits to hide
the film's Soviet origin. The original film, "Planeta Bur", is also known as "Cosmonauts on
Venus", "Planet of Storms", "Planet of Tempests", "Planeta Burg", and "Storm Planet". Much
of the film "Planeta Bur" was also incorporated into the "American" film "Voyage to the
Sci-fi B-movie Planet of Women
Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women (1968) starring adorable Mamie Van Doren is a good example of how to take
something that is pretty good and make it better. In the hands of Peter Bogdanovich, stock footage of Voyage to the
Prehistoric Planet (1965) is co-mingled with new footage to essentially fill the gaps in the first film.
The story begins with a half-hour recap of the first film, summarizing the arrival of two crews of men and a robot
on the planet Venus. The first crew had been lost, and the second crew was sent in to rescue them. Throughout their
time on the planet, they keep hearing a strange female voice singing. This leaves them wondering whether there
is indeed human life existent.
Here's where the Prehistoric women come in. They are all beautiful women, who don't speak, but communicate with each other
telepathically. Whether they are invisible or not, the human astronauts never see them. Clad in skin-tight pants and sea shell
bras, the majority of their time seems to be spent laying around in the sun. They pray to a pterodactyl god, whom they call Tera.
When the Earthling astronauts kill the pterodactyl after it attacks them, the women become enraged. They pray to the Volcanic
God of the planet to exact their revenge on the men and robot. The God concedes and lets loose lava flows and storms when
they ask for them. When the men are not killed, and leave the planet safely, the women are heartbroken and curse the statue
of Tera as a false god. The lava flow had destroyed the robot, but the ladies find the scrap remains a suitable replacement
for Tera. They erect the robot and worship it as a God. link
