The ludicrous 1962 sci-fi adventure Journey To The Seventh Planet gets some respect with its re-release from Kino Lorber.

journey-to-the-seventh-planet1_optIn futuristic 2001, the United Nations has sent a special team of scientists to explore Uranus. And what this interstellar crew discovers is a planet not unlike Earth-complete with a small Danish village filled with voluptuous women! But underneath the utopian veneer is a so powerful and so heinous that it’s using the crew’s memories against them so it can take their spaceship back to Earth-and conquer it!

Wonderfully directed by cult producer, writer and director, Sidney W. Pink (Reptilicus, The Angry Red Planet) and featuring campy performances by John Agar (Sands of Ivo Jima) and Greta Thyssen (Terror is a Man) with an amazing title song by Mitchell Tableporter (aka Teepee Mitchell), this Danish/American co-production is now considered to be one of the greatest cult classics.

Kino Lorber’s re-mastered DVD and Blu-ray editions feature an audio commentary by film historian Tim Lucas.
