From the VHS box:
H.G. Wells’ fantastic account of life on the moon is brought to the screen by special effects master Ray Harryhausen in this amazing sci-fi epic featuring unforgettable extraterrestrial creatures. The film begins with a team of United Nations astronauts planning an upcoming moon mission. The astronauts are both confused and intrigued by a man (Edward Judd) who claims his fiancee, and a scientist journeyed to the moon 65 years ago and were attacked by “Selenites,” grotesque, human-like ant forms that live in immense crystal caverns. Now it is up to the U.N. team to attempt a lunar landing that could be more horrifying than ever believed possible. Directed by Nathan Juran (“Attack of the 50-foor Woman”), FIRST MEN IN THE MOON also stars Martha Hyer and Lionel Jefferies.
