American botanical expedition in the Himalayas stumbles across a Yeti den, capture one and transport it back to Los Angeles, where it escapes while customs officials are debating whether it is animal or human.
In 2020, after the colonization of the moon, the spaceships Vega, Sirius and Capella are launched from Lunar Station 7. They are to explore Venus under the command of Professor Hartman, but an asteroid collides and explodes Capella. The leader ship Vega stays orbiting and sends the astronauts Kern and Sherman with the robot John to the surface of Venus, but they have problems with communication with Dr. Marsha Evans in Vega. The Sirius lands in Venus and Commander Brendan Lockhart, Andre Ferneau and Hans Walter explore the planet and are attacked by prehistoric animals. They use a vehicle to seek Kern and Sherman while collecting samples from the planet. Meanwhile John helps the two cosmonauts to survive in the hostile land.Written by

I saw this movie expecting a complete joke of a science fiction movie and I was surprised at how entertaining it really was. Don't get me wrong, its really hokey, but there are qualities to the film that are kind of impressive. The movie delivers where other movies of the same genre would be too cheap to even try. This movie is filled with prehistoric type monsters, some of which are well animated. The ferocious, tentacled plant that attacks the astronaught at the beginning of the film is very well done.
And the space travel effects at the beginning of the film are suprizingly clean. The enviornment of the planet itself is done convincingly with dressed up terrain and excessive fog. But the real topper to this movie is its GREAT robot! I was really impressed. For the time this movie was made, that robot was very well done. Very cleverly designed, that is for sure. To me, the robot made the movie worth seeing. The flying car was pretty neat, too. And they have lots of scenes with the car that must have been fairly complicated to get. In watching the movie it is apparant that the makers of the film must have put in a lot of effort. I especially liked the design of the space suites. If you want a classic sci fi flick, with the cosmonaughts exploring a hostile alien world and battling plenty of monsters, then this is the movie for you. If you watch it, I hope you are as surprised as I was.
