Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women (1968) is a science fiction film directed by Peter Bogdanovich. The film is an adapted version of Curtis Harrington's Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet, which in turn is adapted from the Russian 1962 feature Planeta Bur by Pavel Klushantsev. No footage from Planeta Bur appears in Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women that did not appear in Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet, and the dubbing is the same. In the United States, this film is in the public domain.
Women of the Prehistoric Planet is a 1966 movie with a similar name.
Astronauts landing on Venus encounter dangerous creatures and almost meet sexy Venusian women. The astronauts kill a creature that is worshiped by the Venusian women who then attempt to use their powers of nature to kill the astronauts but fail. At last, the astronauts leave the planet and their robot that was burnt by the volcano fire is placed as a god by the Venusian women who have already destroyed the statue of their previous god (a bird).
