    • Synopsis
    • Set in the "distant future" of 1980, The Phantom Planet is a glorious sci-fi trip. Dean Fredericks plays an astronaut sent by the government to investigate a mysterious asteroid. Before he can say "B-movie cliché", his ship is caught in a meteor shower, his partner floats away and a tractor beam begins to pull him in. Soon Fredericks is shrunk down to the same size as the asteroids tiny inhabitants, and that's where the fun starts! The Phantom Planet finds our hero put on trial, caught in a love triangle, and conscripted to fight the terrifying alien menace that is the Solorite (led by character actor Richard Kiel), all before he can return home. A hilarious journey into the future of the past!
