As a kid, I ate up The Land The Time Forgot (1975) and At The Earth’s Core (1976). Submarines, machine guns, giant drills and lots and lots of cheesy monsters — absolute perfection dumped onto a strip of celluloid. It’s like Amicus Productions and AIP had settled on a target market that consisted solely of me. But, of course, it turns out there were lots of kids like me, simultaneously rotting our brains all over the world.
With the Kino Lorber Blu-ray coming in June, which I’m sure will be glorious, we can all retire the Ken Films black and white Super 8mm thing and the Midnight Movies DVD. I can’t wait.
