I am looking for an old B-rated science fiction movie. All I remember are the astronauts are trapped on a planet, and there is a stationary alien probe that burns them every time they get near it. Does anyone know this film?

The IMDB site is here:


A YouTube clip can be found here. The part with the burning astronaut is at timestamp 7:30 - 8:00

And here's the alien:

Any of this look familiar?
