Despite the voyage to Venus is plagued by setbacks along the way, earth sends 2 landing probes to the planet to examine it, all supervised by Marsha Evans (Faith Domergue) who stayed behind on the spaceship, & doctor Hartman (Basil Rathbone) from the Lunar base.

But even at the landing one of the probes, containing Sherman (Yuri Sarantsev) & Kern (Georgi Tejkh) plus superrobot John crashes & though all passengers survive they are cut off communications.

The other probe meanwhile, containing youthful Andrej (Gennadi Vernov), Hans (Georgi Zhzhyonov) & commander Lockhart (Vladimir Yemelyanov) lands safely, but the trio constantly attacked by dinosaurs on their way to save Sherman & Kern, they even have to go underwater to escape a flying reptile. But it is there where they find the first signs of human life on Venus in form of a bronce idol, plus they seem to constantly hear a woman singing, which especially fascinates Andrej.

In the end though, all seems lost for Sherman & Kern when a volcano breaks out & they find themselves unprotected from the lava, but superrobot John is able to carry them to safety, meaning to Lockhart, Hans & Andrej (who have since emerged from the water again), & they hastily get back to the probe to leave the planet again ... but not before Andrej finds the definite proof for humans on venus in form of the small sculpture of a female face ...


This is an example of how economic AIP operated in the mid-60's: They had bought the (rather serious & special effects-laden) Russian sci-fi-movie Planeta Bur/Planet of the Storms from 1962, but instead of giving that movie a proper release (which - granted - might not have been that easy in the Cold War times), some new scenes were added starring a very tired Basil Rathbone & Faith Domergue, sort of tieing the spliced up Russian footage together again, thus creating a special effects spectacle with some stars attached to it for a comparably low budget. But as if that was not enough, 3 years later they took massive footage from Planeta Bur once more (not even shying away from taking the very same footage) to produce another sci-fi spectacle, Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women, now starring Mamie Van Doren (!) in the new footage.

The results of such a mish-mash are expectedly uneven as Russian & American footage don't go too well together & the American scenes always seem to interrupt the Russian ones in the least fitting moments, but on a pure trash level Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet is good-natured fun - which is of course not doing Planeta Bur itself much justice.
