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.Read more ›
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.
