Zontar: The Thing from Venus is a 1965, low-budget, sci-fi horror film. It is a remake of the 1957 film, It Conquered the World. The film begins in the command center of Dr. Curt Taylor's (John Agar) mission to send a new "laser satellite" into space. Dr. Taylor is briefly interrupted by his colleague, Dr. Keith Ritchie (Anthony Huston), who pleads with him to stop the launch before it is too late. Dr. Ritchie claims to have discovered that aliens watching the planet Earth have been responsible for sabotaging such missions in the past and be pressed to take further action to prevent mankind from messing around in space. "Your problem has just become an academic question," says Dr. Curt, as the satellite has just been launched. Three months later, Dr. Ritchie's machine built to communicate with the planet Venus identifies the name "Zontar" from a transmission just as Dr. Taylor's satellite inexplicably goes missing. It was a warning, as an angry, telepathic, insect-like monster is on its way to Earth.
