A U.N. space expedition to the planet Uranus discovers a bizarrely familiar world right out of their own heads, featuring places and people the crew members recall from their past. It's all part of a fantasy created by the planet's master, a giant, pulsating brain that can also turn their worst thoughts into reality. Written by

When officials at American International viewed the completed film, they decided that some of the Danish-produced special effects were so poor that they needed to be replaced. Two members of the independent special effects company Project Unlimited, Jim Danforth and Wah Chang, shot new footage to replace some of the Danish special effects. Some of the deleted footage was also replaced with tinted black-and-white monster footage from Earth vs. the Spider (1958). See more »
Concerning the astronauts' rubber suits, oxygen is not really an issue as their faces aren't fully covered by the glass welder-style visors. See more »
I can't see why Ray Bradbury didn't sue these people for stealing "Mars is Heaven"
Am I wrong here, or is this plot basically the same as the Ray Bradbury story? I couldn't find any reference to Bradbury on the IMDb entry for this movie.
I know Bradbury did resolve a similar conflict over "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms". Aside from that, I always enjoy John Agar movies, I wish more of them were available on DVD, "The Mole People", "Tarantula", and "Attack of the Puppet People", for example.
There is also a thin similarity to the Star Trek Season One episode "Shore Leave"
Otherwise, I'm happy to have this movie in my SciFi collection.
