Photo of the Day

Princess Dia (Caroline Munro) and Ghak (Godfrey James) are introduced to some new friends (Peter Cushing and Doug McClure off screen) in AT THE EARTH'S CORE

This is one of those stories of some relatively 'modern' men (Victorian time) who end up in some strange prehistoric world with some lost civilization tormented by various strange monsters. I, a Canadian in Montreal, used to watch this film religiously every time it played on the US network ABC in the late 1970s and early 80s. The beautiful Caroline Munro helps make this goofy but good-hearted adventure fun to watch. Great surreal sets, great score (standard orchestra and electronic), fun cast with so-so special effects. What's not to like?

Caroline was indeed good looking, and is good clean old fashioned fun. The flyiong monsters, however, are pretty pathetic.

I saw this in the theater. A lot of fun if a bit goofy.
