This film is short(Thank goodness) and very lame in my mind. Here is what all I thought of this piece and what they did.
1962 brought a dandy show to 'nabe theaters everywhere. Savant, aged 11, saw the full page ads in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner and practically went nuts. "You Are There ... on Mankind's Greatest Adventure!" First Spaceship on Venus, in TotalScope and Technicolor, and Varan, the UnBelievable.
Since neither film was longer than an hour and twenty minutes, my hometown theater ground out 4 complete cycles a day. On the Saturday I went the double bill filled the house with hundreds of candy-eating, popcorn-tossing kids.
We didn't have a clue about what we were watching. We didn't know that both features were recycled foreign productions, presumably bought cheaply and retooled to amuse American kiddies. Varan had a monster. It smashed things and roared loudly. Spaceship had what looked like a full-sized rocket taking off, lots of futuristic hardware on display and a unique and exotic planet looking nothing like the cardboard scenery of Missle to the Moon.
Dated movie, but interesting acting. I especially liked the Blob scene on the planet...very life-like. I recommend this space terror movie for the people who like early 60s' european sci-fi.
Good basic old Sci-fi. Not quite up to the level of "The Thing" or "The Day The Earth Stood Still", but pretty god stuff overall
This is an excellent B movie. It's a great trip to nostalgically look back at the sci-fi genre through the eyes of the early 60's.
Applause to the melting pot of talent who transform this bizare tale into a most entertaining experience.
