Georgan G Another from the 50 SciFi Classics, this had sexpot Mamie Van Doren. Same film as "Voyager to Prehistoric Planet" but with semi-nude female scenes & a new ending. Yes, it was clipped & dubbed from a Russian film & other places. But it was campy, which made it fun to watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/01/23 Full Review Milhouse V Despite being called 'Planet of the Prehistoric Women', the prehistoric women are barely in it. The story instead focuses on the astronauts that are exploring the planet Venus in the George Jetson car with a 'Danger Will Robinson' robot (sorry, I can't remember the name of it). Then they get attacked by a pterodactyl. There. You literally got every highlight of the film now. Now take 90-minutes to read my review and you've got the whole film. If you're still intrigued, have at it. I tried to warn you. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 07/08/21 Full Review Audience Member Horribly written, terribly filmed, and excruciatingly boring. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A Masterpiece. See it, under any circumstances. Director: Peter Bogdanovich (as Derek Thomas) Writer: Henry Ney (screenplay) Stars: Mamie Van Doren, Mary Marr, Paige Lee Astronauts landing on Venus encounter dangerous creatures and almost meet some sexy Venusian women who like to sun-bathe in hip-hugging skin-tight pants and seashell brassieres. Trivia This is actually a re-edited version of a film previously released in the U.S. as Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet (1965), which itself was an edited and dubbed version of the Soviet film Planeta bur (1962). For this version the already dubbed Russian footage was re-used but the American insert shots of Basil Rathbone and Faith Domergue were removed and new insert shots featuring Mamie Van Doren and other actresses (as inhabitants of Venus) were inserted. The film takes place in 1998. The "Prehistoric Women" do not appear in the original Russian film from which this was made. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Weirdo re-edit of the 1965 film "Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet," which itself was a re-edit of a 1962 Soviet era science fiction film that had been dubbed into English, but this 1968 re-edit was done for Roger Corman by a young Peter Bogdanovich ("The Last Picture Show" "Paper Moon"), though billed as Derek Thomas, who added new footage of Mamie Van Doren. The story takes place in the distant future of 1998, where a group of astronauts land on Venus to kill a pterodactyl-like creature that's worshiped by the planet's seductive women, led by VanDoren. The pterodactyl was in the original version, but Bogdanovich added the women, but unfortunately to little effect. The film does have novelty value in it being one of producer Corman's sillier than most cash grabs, taking a film he already owned and adding sex to sell the movie again, along with it being an early work by Bogdanovich, but outside of that there's really not a lot to suggest here. FUN FACT: Bogdanovich provided the film with its Orson Welles-like narration. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review kevin w Pretend salaciousness hiding under the cover of supposedly serious science fiction, some astronaut types venture to Planet Venus, exploring and all that. They would've found some blondie babes swimming around if they'd've bothered to have looked, but they don't, and so that's the movie: some science types in globe-head spacesuits don't discover blondie Venus Babes ...it's kind've disappointing. Blah. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
