In 1998, six months after the collision of a meteor and subsequent explosion of a rocket sent to Venus, the team composed by the astronauts Kern and Sherman with the robot John is launched to explore Venus. They arrive in the Space Station Texas for refueling but they have problems while landing in Venus. Without communication, another rocket is launched with Commander Brendan Lockhart, Andre Ferneau and Hans Walter to rescue the first team and explore the planet. They use a vehicle to seek Kern and Sherman, but they are attacked by a flying reptile. They kill the animal without knowing that it is worshiped and considered the God Terah by Venusians women that use their powerful connection with nature to destroy the invaders. Meanwhile John helps the two cosmonauts to survive in the hostile land. Written by

I'm a Horror geek. I just got no room or patience for the sci-fi side of things. I just don't get it. And honestly, I find Science-fact much more fascinating.
However, Ihave noticed, over the years, a few odd, little vintage sci-fi flicks out there, that I could hang with. But only the ones that are really stupid.
All it took was for me to spot the title, "Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women". Sometimes you just know you've found schlock-gold! And that's exactly what this movie is.
Incoherent, pointlessly entertaining, late-60's gold. About a group of voyagers headed to Venus. Other than intrigue & adventure, they end up finding an angry flying dinosaur-thing, who a group of women (who I guess are the only inhabitants of Venus) consider their god.
And you know they get their feathers ruffled with the damn thing gets itself killed, by the astronauts who were only trying to defend themselves. Tara is dead, and now, someone is gonna get it.
As much as I enjoyed Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women, I'd have a hard time convincing someone of it's awsomeness. I mean, it has an unusually dreamy atmosphere... And, well, yeah! That's basically it.
Nothing exciting, dramatic, funny, or even remotely scary happens. Just an oddity for those of us who like that sort of thing. If you don't care about that, and you think it's all about the ridiculously large budget & special effects, then The Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women is clearly not a voyage worth taking.
But if you have awesome taste it awful movies, like me, then you just might not hate this movie. 8/10.
