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

The major contribution made to the American International version by Jim Danforth and Wah Chang was the giant cyclopean rodent monster. The monster's roar was actually Rodan's roar taken from Rodan (1956) (US title: "Rodan"). See more »
Given the length of time it would have taken a flight to Uranus to occur, let alone the time it would have taken once the crew is "frozen" by the alien for the apple to have shriveled to that degree, the crew members would have had substantial beard growth. See more »

Nothing shows up Sci Fi movies like the passage of time. Sure this movie has loads of clichés ... right down to the curly antennae on the space helmets but this movie could easily have been the pilot for Star Trek.
As I understand it this movie came out the year before Star Trek and judging from the colours in the movie it felt the need to compete with T.V versions of Lost in Space and Batman which competed on opposite TV networks boasting how many colours they showed!
Not for the Sci Fi purists this is a good old ripping yarn set in space. I love these old classics, how the characters accept totally bizarre situations as the "norm" and can make great leaps in figuring out "the science" of what's going on.
Believe it or not the gloves worn with the space suits... red glove with yellow wrist band were known as "Radiac" gloves and were carried on U.K Fire appliances in the 70's and 80's for dealing with radiation incidents.
Good steady paced nonsense and with some stop frame animation that is obviously inspired by the late great Ray Harryhausen superb.
