so bad - its GREAT
on 1 May 2013
amazon film overview first :"After crash landing on Venus, a team of astronauts encounter flying reptiles and other prehistoric monsters. One they kill is considered a God by the female inhabitants of Venus, bringing further wrath from an already hostile planet". Written by Henry Ney Directed by Peter Bogdanovich. and so ...
"Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women" from 1968, is possibly the most ineptly made film i've EVER seen. the other amazon reviews generally focus either on the very poor image quality or shall we say "jumbled" script but for me miss the main selling point of this film - its so AWFUL its FANTASTIC ! for any fan of laughably bad b-movie genre with films by Ed Wood et al : "Plan 9 from Outer Space", "The Ape Man" etc, "VTTPOPW" is a must. the first 15 minutes are pure Russian space film footage, then the "plot" er develops from there. mainly blond women (from Venus obviously) , rubber prehistoric creatures,spliced with the Russian spacemen adding er an extra diemnsion to this extraordinarily bad film. there are so many funny moments in this film , for less than £5 / $8 to your door - it s a great saturday night in with pizza and friends type film .
yes - the picture quality is awful + an obvious cheap cash-in from Elstree (no liner notes or original film release dates either), BUT the film is so bad, laughably spliced together with the two different films , + plain so bad its good enjoyable . people will still find this film hugely enjoyable. SO bad but GOOD, and a welcome addition to the Ed Wood lineage. THIS FILM IS A CLEAR CUT 1 OR 5 STARS. :depending on yr sense of humour or what constitutes a "good" film. like i said for my review of "Attack of the 50tf Woman" (1993 remake)- this is not Bergamn or Tarkovsky - its trash : Get it ?
