Bunch of astronauts land on the (then undiscovered) 13th moon of Jupiter, which looks suspiciously like an English garden. There they encounter an old man and a bunch of scantily-clad starlets, er, 'Fire Maidens,' who dance endlessly to Aleksandr Borodin music. There's also a vaguely defined monster and human sacrifices, and. . .oh, who cares.

Easily one of the worst sci-fi films ever made, released the same year British studios put out classics of the genre like 1984 and X the Unknown. Without redeeming value and probably only made to occupy Cy Roth's casting couch with warm derrieres.

I get on Mystery Science Theater 3000's case from time to time for mocking decent films, but this one - oh this one is the perfect film for them, and really the only way to watch it.
