This film is still as good as I remember it 43 years ago .Of course there have been many films in those years with better special effects and more engrossing story lines but this is still a great monster flick.I remembered watching this at the cinema when it first was released in 1966.It did make a feature of the special effects then with volcano erupting and the earth quake .I dont think this still stands up anymore in todays world with years of nature programes and news reels going everywhere in the world being shown on our tvs .However I still enjoyed this film very much .It has a very simple story to it .Of course it features the famous Raquel Wellch, who was the fascination of most young boys then for two obvious reasons that are still facinating to me 40 years on, and the scene in the cave with the apelike creature still gave me goosebumps and had me holding my breath.
So its still a good film worth revisiting and if you have never seen it but you know the style of the monsters then this has some realy good examples .I have always loved the flying dinosuar scene .So enjoy ,and if your a boy enjoy Miss Wellch .
