FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS

In the distant futuristic year of 1970, a strange magnetic spool is discovered by construction workers. Scientists determine that it came from the planet Venus so, naturally enough, they hop on a rocket ship to figure out what the spool is and what kind of civilization created it. And soon enough, they’re really sorry they even got started on this.  

This huge movie was a Polish-East German co-production, the first to be shot in the widescreen process Totalvision. It was the most expensive film produced by its company. Even so, it eventually ended up on MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, so you do the math.  

This is a very rare opportunity to see this good/bad film in all its Totalscope and Technicolor splendor.
