Its got Jack Taylor & Kenneth Moore in this.
The following review was written by Michael Den Boar of 10,000 Bullets.

Where Time Began (Jules Verne's The Fabulous Journey to the Center of the Earth): While visiting a book store Professor Lindenbrock buys some beat up books from a vagrant. One of the books plot is about journeying to the center of the earth. While reading the book one day Professor Lindenbrock discovers a decoded message which explains when and how it is possible to travel to the center of the Earth. Professor Lindenbrock with his niece Glauben and her fiancé Axel travel to Iceland to begin their journey. Shortly after their arrival they find themselves a guide named Hans who helps navigate the treacherous terrain that lies ahead of them.

Spanish director Juan Piquer Simón is best known for his ultraviolet slasher film Pieces which also happens to feature a performance by Jack Taylor. Who also has a role in The Fabulous Journey to the Center of the Earth. He has also directed some other cult favorites like the killer slugs' movie Slugs and E.T. clone The Pod People. Juan Piquer Simón is on his best day a competent director on his best day whose films lack any distinctive style. His direction for The Fabulous Journey to the Center of the Earth is some of his best work of his career as he keeps things simple and lets the story to all the talking.

The Fabulous Journey to the Center of the Earth is based loosely on Jules Verne's 1864 novel `Journey to the Center of the Earth'. The screenplay retains the meat of Verne's story which is a good thing since the original novel is perfect and needs no changes. The film has a pulp/serial type feel to it that harkens back to the classic Sci-Fi and action adventure serials of the 1940's.

Two great double feature movies from the 1970s, I remember when I was a little kid!
if you liked the 1970s then you'll like this double bill!
The movie "Encounters" is a spooky 3 story horror movie with Twilight Zone's own Rod Serling narrating!
Everything's good except the only thing that bothered me is I was somewhat dissapointed when I discovered that it's packaged on the box as "Exploitation Cinema" but when you play the DVD disc it saya "Septic cinema" and it doesn't have that cute introduction like you're walking into a movie theater and you can select other options and/or the option of playing the "Grindhouse Experience" at the lobby refreshment stand just like the other "Exploitation/Grindhouse Cinema" DVD's collection.
The DVD does come with vintage 1970s movie trailers of both action and kung fu movies!

When I was a kid, I was a big fan of TNT's MonsterVision which was like USA Up All Night only they showed these old low budget horror flicks. TV favorite Joe Bob Briggs hosted it. One of the show's staples was Encounter With the Unknown. It usually followed another TV classic, The Legend of Boggy Creek. I've lost track the number of times I recorded and re-recorded these movies and now Code Red has finally done EWtU justice by bringing it out of the VHS graveyard and into the digital age.

Encounter With the Unknown is much in the vein of Night Gallery and The Twilight Zone with Rod Sterling narrating a trio of supernatural tales. In the first story, a grieving mother places a deadly curse on three young men who played a fatal prank on her only son. "One by land. Two by sky...". In the second story, a country boy discovers a gaping hole in the middle of his family's land where strange, terrifying noises emanate from deep within. When the boy's bumpkin father and his friends decide to venture down into the hole, they soon discover that there are places man was never meant to go. In the last story, a sad young girl hails a ride home from the bridge. When the good Sumaritan arrives at the girl's home, she has vanished and he earns of her sad fate.

Code Red has done a remarkable job by presenting this fun family horror flick in an anamorphic widescreen version. While the print is riddled with scratches, debris, and washed out colors, it's a small price to pay to finally see it on DVD. I didn't care. I've waited so long to add this to my collection that I'll take this copy any day.
