Directed by Kevin Connor

Starring Doug McClure, Peter Cushing and Caroline Munro.
I was 12 when At The Earth’s Core (1976) arrived at the Village Twin here in Raleigh. The perfect age. The previous AIP/Amicus/Burroughs film, The Land That Time Forgot (1975) starring Doug McClure, had been cool, but this one was even better, since it added the great Peter Cushing, more cheesy monsters, some underground mutants (Sagoths) and Caroline Munro to the mix.
It’s an absolute masterpiece of dumb fun. And Kino’s bringing it to Blu-ray in January, 2015, with plenty of supplemental stuff:
• Audio Commentary by director Kevin Connor
• New on-camera interview with co-star Caroline Munro
• New on-camera interview with director Kevin Connor
• Original theatrical trailer
