"Where's the Ymir?"

Films: Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet (1965)

Alias: Alien Plant, Alien Sauropod, Alien Raptors, Alien Pterosaur

Type: Alien

Location: Eldritch Location/Desert/Swamp

Height/Weight: Ranges from that of a large flower to that of a small building.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: This isn't the first time people tried convincing us that dinosaurs could live on a distant planet, and it certainly won't be the last. And somehow, we'd take Planet Nova over this malarkey.

History: Years after man colonized the moon, mankind sets its sights on Venus. But surprise, it's filled with prehistoric animals and subtle hints of greater life. Either way, the game for survival is on, complete with a robot monitor named John.

Notable Kills: None.

Final Fate: The plant is repelled and photographed, lots of raptors get gunned down, and the rest is left to screw around. It is confirmed though that humanoids live here...

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-The cheapness of these props is just too noticeable. Especially with the raptors, which have to freaking hop around to move! That pterosaur looked pretty demonic, though.

Trivia: -This is actually a recut version of a 1962 Russian movie known as "Planeta Bur", but with some dialogue changes and additional actors like Basil Rathbone in it.

-Rathbone and the other new actor Faith Domergue shot their scenes in at most half a day.

Attack of the Mini-Gorgos!

This guy should have been the main character.
If only the raptors looked this good.

"Please stop hugging me."
Somehow, these non-raptors look even more threatening than what we got!.

Don't mess with John, the most human character of the film.

Which stock dinosaur should attack first?
