Zontar – the Thing From Venus (1966) – A Schlockfest – But it’s Free
Oh, this is another bad, Public Domain Sci-Fi movie I found of the Internet Archive. There really aren’t many redeeming values to this movie other that it’s campiness and silly creature design. It’s god bad acting galore and next to no busget – I think it fits on this page perfectly.
So, the US has launched a Laser satellite that Zontar, the thing from Venus needs to complete his plan to come to Earth and take over human kind. One scientist is working to help Zontar (under the belief that Zontar means to help mankind) and another scientist works to thwart Zontar’s plans. Throw in the military, some rocket scientists (including one played by Jeff Alexander – star and antagonist of Curse of the Swamp Creature – another terrible film I spotlighted here on this blog a few weeks ago).
I’m not going to spend much time on this film other than to say that it is one of many films available freely and legally as it has lapsed into the public domain: watch, copy and distribute it to your heart’s content – no one owns it any more). Was it good? Oh, hell no. Was it watchable? Well, I watched it. Should you watch it? Hey, that’s up to you. If you want, the whole damn thing is available here:
