Travel back through time and space to the edge of man’s beginnings…discover a savage world whose only law was lust!


This film is a bit of a guilty pleasure. How can any guy not like a movie that has Raquel Welch in a fur bikini being chased by Ray Harryhausen’s dinosaurs? I know that it can be quite tacky, especially the scene early on where the giant turtle attacks, but that is half the fun.  It’s not a great film or even a really good film, but it is fun in a really trashy type of way. Many of the special effects aren’t all that convincing or good but the movie is enjoyable enough if you aren’t expecting anything too cerebral.
