Editorial Reviews

A stone-age horror film with almost no dialog, the people speak in grunts, centers around a tribe of cavemen. When the leader dies, there is a rivalry between twin brothers, each of whom want the top spot. A well done earthquake scene highlights this film.

Sony's burn-on-demand DVD-R of CREATURES THE WORLD FORGOT (1971) is a sharp transfer of an unrestored, original dye-transfer 35mm negative. It is widescreen, anamorphic, in rich color, uncut and uncensored.

On the surface CREATURES THE WORLD FORGOT is pure exploitation. Savage cavemen hunt food, eat raw meat, fight over women, kill each other, deliver babies, observe rituals, and compete for leadership. The violence is constant, brutal, and bloody. In the absence of dinosaurs, the abundance of beautiful women and female nudity is sufficient reason to watch, but as the primitive society begins to take shape, and the two tribes start to barter, and the two brothers start fighting over the woman, it should become apparent there is more going on than mere titillation. This is a realistic story about primitives learning to govern their passions and violent instincts, to overcome their superstitions, and to mix with each other, so that they can survive in a relentlessly harsh environment. After an earthquake, the two tribes need each other to find a more hospitable place to live. They rely on the female shaman to guide them. It may not be the most sophisticated or well-informed treatise on early man, and the rituals depicted may not be grounded in historical reality, but the premise is viable, the conflicts are metaphorically interesting, the character interaction is well thought-out and reasonably well-acted, and the sight of all that bruised and bloodied flesh crossing hardscrabble landscapes tells us everything we need to know about the vulnerability of humans thousands of years before Christ. Indeed, CREATURES THE WORLD FORGOT invests the caveman society with an Old Testament quality.

It's great to finally have this Hammer prehistoric theme movie given a proper release on DVD. The previous offerings were limited to full frame versions and were pretty fuzzy transfers. This pressing preserves the original widescreen aspect ratio and is nice and sharp. 'Creatures the World Forgot' is a pretty obvious attempt by Hammer to cash in on the success of it's earlier effort 'One Million Years BC' and it's got a lot of the same elements in the plot department. What it doesn't have, sadly, is any Ray Harryhausen (or even Jim Danforth) dinosaurs to provide a menacing foil for the wandering prehistoric protagonists (gotta keep that budget under control!). It sort of 'makes up' for this lack by presenting a lot more nudity in the female cast (something we all might have wished for in the aforementioned stop-motion dino/caveman epics). The plot actually follows a couple of generations of the prehistoric tribe as they meander over some very attractive (if inhospitable) landscape, chronicling the internal power struggles of two brothers to rule the tribe, win the girl, and find food to eat - on the way to discover a more fertile place to live. For most male viewers it would doubtless be the many topless cavegrrrls that make this, otherwise, rather lack-lustre effort worth sitting through - for the 'feminists' in the audience there is (besides a lot of semi-naked males) an interesting sub text of the female shamaness who is actually the 'power' behind the throne' - sort of a presage to the whole 'Clan of the Cave Bear' phenomenon of later years.Read more ›

This Hammer Studio extravaganza is fantastic fun. Of course the reviewers love to dismiss it but if you like plenty of gorgeous male and female bodies, most of them wearing almost nothing, ravishing scenery (this was filled in the Canary Islands), this should be a definite addition to your movie shelf. The story is about two brothers, one good, one evil,(Tony Bonner and Robert John) who both lust after the same girl (Julie Ege). The scenery is a knockout with everything filmed in beautiful, Technicolor saturated colors, photographed by Vincent Cox. The version you see on American Movie Classics had been edited from the first frame to the last. The original version, which had an X-rating, seems to be lost. The TV version is still amazingly hot--showing all those sun-bronzed bodies in nearly the all-together. One can only imagine the good times enjoyed by all during the long shoot, beneath the blazing sun, and the lucky costume designer and make-up people whose jobs couldn't have been that difficult--when you had so many beautiful people to prepare.

This is one of the classic oldies from my past. I love the old sci-fi movies and this one ranks way near the top of my list and I have hundreds. Hollywood just can't or don't make them like they use too (cornet but very entertaining) It's how they made them 40 - 50 years ago. Sure they didn't have million dollar budgets and state of the art computer enhancements but the campy simple storyline made them great.

I hadn't heard of this movie until recently. It's surprisingly good.
One might think that a movie about scantily clad Cro Magnon, with the most rudimentary grunting language, and largely devoid of special effects would be a drop kick. Not so....though they mucked it up with One Million years BC, despite Ms Welch.

Hammer did like their volcanos and earthquakes, and got that over with at the beginning. The story takes place over about 10-25 years. The title is a misnomer...all the creatures...chiefly humans, are modern.
Typically, the story treats of sibling rivalry, jealously, avarice, greed, murder and the suppression of women, although allows certain women privileged positions.
There are several scenes involving characters being tied up, where one half expects a bloke with kangaroo paw bottle openers to undo the knots.
We see a number of large fight scenes, where the body count does not accord with the numbers in the clans, nor injuries sustained during the fights. One would hope that 1970 arithmetic would be better than it was 80000 years ago.

This is a well photographed play, which looks good, though there are some abrupt color saturation changes.
Julie Ege and other women look good, try hard, and the men are mostly unmitigated pratts, apart from a not very convincing Tony Bonner, and a rather better elder hero. So, not much change over the millennia, the writers suggest. I agree.

Highly entertaining, poses some questions, and some interesting speculations about how early Cro Magnon might have done things.
