Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962) – More Boring but Mildy Interesting Sci-Fi Fare
Another weird, cheezy Science Fiction movie – that’s two in one day! This one is a little older than the last (Cosmos – War of the Planets – 1977), but don’t let that fool you: Iit packs a full arsenal of cheeziness.
It’s the story of an ill-fated Space mission sent by the United Nations to explore the seventh planet, Uranus. Expecting to find a frozen wasteland, they discover themselves on what seems to be a lushly forested Earth. They soon find that what they imagine soon seems to become real (almost). They have come under the influence of and evil psychic alien that distracts and tempts them by creating illusions of their deepest desires. The evil entity plans to come back to Earth via the bodies and minds of the crew, and when it gets to Earth, it plans global domination – like most Evil Aliens. The crew therefore must find a way to defeat the Alien…
Do they defeat the Alien? Come on – do you really need to ask that? Watch it your self if you need to know. It’s a little boring and dry, but it’s a movie. It’s a little reminiscent of 1972 Polish Sci-Fi classic, Solaris (a little, I said). I know you can find a low quality copy on Google Video (of all places), and I watched it on Netflix, so if you want to see it, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding it.
