This is an epic story of cosmonauts landing on an alien planet, in this case Venus. They find themselves in danger from the voracious monsters, each one more fearsome than the last. You will find yourself being charmed by the ingenious photography, superb creatures, magnificent special effects (some are truly astounding). Probably the best well-thought-out robot in screen history. An intelligent, engaging story dealing with the discovery of an ancient culture. “The Planet of Storms” was later edited and dubbed as "Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet", released in the US in 1965. This movie (and the Russian inserts) were in turn used to create "Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women" (1968).
