Long ago, the first men offered human sacrifices to the gods, trying to discover the eternal mysteries of life. One girl escapes imminent death and is rescued by a warrior from another land. Their love for one another forces them to be outcasts, left to battle against their fellow men, the elements and the awesome power of the prehistoric creatures.

Jim Danforth and Roger Dicken were Oscar-nominated for their special-effects work on When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth.

It's hard not to fall in love with Victoria Vetri watching WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH. And the blonde wig definitely works to her advantage. . .she becomes an impossibly gorgeous cavegirl and even manages to outshine Raquel Welch in ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. The stop motion animation by Jim Danforth is top notch (and a major improvement over his more uneven work on JACK THE GIANT KILLER). When it came time for Hammer to producer CREATURES THE WORLD FORGOT, I almost wish they'd scrapped the new cast and given us the further adventures of Ms. Vetri and company.
