Doomsday Machine (1972) Spies discover that the Red Chinese have built a "doomsday machine" capable of destroying the surface of the Earth, and that they plan to use it within a matter of days. Meanwhile, Project Astra, a manned U.S. space mission to Venus, is in its final hours before launch when it is taken over by the military and nearly half of its all-male crew is replaced by women. The reason for this becomes apparent when, shortly after Astra leaves orbit, the Earth is completely destroyed in a global cataclysm! Is the human race doomed? What dangers and wonders await the crew of the Astra on their journey to Venus?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Katie: I've got myself railroaded into a stud poker game!
  • Danny: We're picking up a bomb of static. Must be due to the Van Allen Belt.
  • Katie: I came to see about supper. Price: Well, it's the altitude. It works up the appetite.
  • Katie: You're very forceful, aren't you? Mason: Do I, er, need force? Katie: I was talking about vibrations. Mason: Oh. How are yours doing? Katie: What do they say? Mason: I'm not sure, but I like them. Katie: And they like you. In time.
  • Mason: I don't believe it. I don't believe it! Danny: Well, there must be a practical side to having women along. Dr. Perry: You mean like having your socks washed?
Movie Trivia:
  • Most of the movie was filmed in 1967 but due to a lack of financing it wasn't completed until 1972 when the producers had acquired enough money to complete the film, but without any of the original cast members.
  • Hosted by Elvira Mistress of the Dark on her show "Movie Macabre" on August 27 1983.
  • This film uses several special effects shots from Y˘sei Gorasu (1962) (including most of the exterior shots of space flight involving the ship and other space stations). Many of the other shots of both the spacecraft (showing a completely different craft than featured in the "Yosei Gorasu" footage) and interior shots of television screens are taken from The Wizard of Mars (1965).
