Description

The Soviet cosmonauts in PLANET OF STORMS land on the hot, uneven surface of Venus, which turns out to be a very inhospitable planet for humans but perfect for giant creatures. Besides lava flows, scary plants, dinosaurs and pterodactyls, there is a body of water, which hides evidence of previous inhabitation by intelligent, artistic beings who looked rather human. Even with the assistance of a kind and thoughtful robot, the earth creatures (male and female) are continually in danger. PLANET OF STORMS is a fascinating look at how Soviet scientists/artists thought Venus might be. Within a short time after the film's release it would become known that the planet is incapable of sustaining life.

—Chale Nafus, Director of Programming, Austin Film Society
