Description by OLDIES.com:

H.G. Wells' fantastic account of life on the moon is vividly brought to the screen by special effects master Ray Harryhausen in this amazing sci-fi epic featuring 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 he, his fiance 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's up to the U.N. team to attempt a lunar landing that could be more horrifying than ever believed possible.

Product Description:

As a team of United Nations astronauts are planning an upcoming moon mission, they are approached by an elderly man who recounts a trip he took to the moon 65 years ago (in 1899) and was attacked by "Selenites," a race of ant-like beings that dwell in caverns of crystal. Based on the story by H.G. Wells and featuring the magical special effects work of Ray Harryhausen.

Plot Synopsis:

Adapted from H.G. Wells' novel about three modern-day astronauts, from Russia, England and the US who land on the moon and discover, much to their surprise, a British flag planted in the ground and an old faded manuscript dated from 1899, implying that someone had certainly been there ahead of them and as far back as the Edwardian era.
