"That brain thing sends out the radiation"...

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.

Is Uranus surrounded by clouds of poison gas?

I have just managed to acquire a VHS copy of Journey to the Seventh Planet and found this movie quite enjoyable, despite reading some bad reviews about it.

A party travelling on an expedition to Uranus discover a strange world and strange goings on when they land there. What each crew member thinks of appears, including beautiful women. A giant brain is the cause of all these strange happenings. We also see a strange cyclops-rat-dinosaur monster. After a couple of the crew are killed and the giant brain blown up, the party heads back to earth.

The cyclops monster is certainly strange looking and was done in stop-motion by Jim Danforth.

Apart from sci fi regular John Agar (Tarantula, Attack of the Puppet People), most of the cast are unknowns although Dainish actor Carl Ottosen appeared in Reptilicus.

This movie is worth a look at, just for that cyclops monster.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.

I can't see why Ray Bradbury didn't sue these people for stealing "Mars is Heaven"

Am I wrong here, or is this plot basically the same as the Ray Bradbury story? I couldn't find any reference to Bradbury on the IMDb entry for this movie.

I know Bradbury did resolve a similar conflict over "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms". Aside from that, I always enjoy John Agar movies, I wish more of them were available on DVD, "The Mole People", "Tarantula", and "Attack of the Puppet People", for example.

There is also a thin similarity to the Star Trek Season One episode "Shore Leave"

Otherwise, I'm happy to have this movie in my SciFi collection.
