More Movie Taglines:
- You'll scream yourself into a state of shock!
- The cavemen footage is from a Filipino movie shot in 1965. The new US color footage was shot in 1966. The film itself wasn't released until 1970.
This film is a mixture of a mid 60s Filippino horror movie called "Tagani", "One Million BC" (1940) and "Unknown Island" (1948).
The Filippino film "Tagani" which forms the basis of Adamson's film was made in black and white. As drive-ins at the time were clamoring for color features, the black and white footage was tinted using a process which was hyped as Spectrum X.
Director of photography on the newly filmed sequences was Vilmos Zsigmond, a future Oscar winner.
Director Al Adamson loved the film "Tagani" when he saw it in the mid 60s so he purchased the rights himself.
