Edgar Rice Burroughs Video Double Feature

Hulu recently began showing HD videos. And while you can’t embed the awesomeness that is Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and the other HD content is kinda lame, you can share the older (non-HD) stuff like these Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations. The Hulu descriptions preface each movie, but all you really need to know is that they both feature Doug McClure.

First up is At The Earth’s Core:

In this fantasy-adventure based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novel, a scientist and his protege burrow their way from Victorian England to the center of the Earth and encounter a lost world of prehistoric monsters and subhuman creatures.

Next up…The People That Time Forgot:

A small party set out to find a marooned World War I Naval hero lost on a tropical island north of the ice barrier in the arctic. They encounter prehistoric monsters, spouting volcanoes and menacing mad cavemen.

  1. At the Earth’s Core is a fun “B movie” a childhood favorite, that is still watchable despite rather weak special effects.

  2. Hmmm…Caroline Munro….


    Caroline Munro….

  3. At the Earth’s Core has some of the worst special effects this side of Saturday morning adventure serials from the 50s-70s. But… Caroline Munro!

    I watched “The People That Time Forgot” last week and there was one thing that made me wonder.








    When the ladies are rescued from sacrifice to the volcano god and the high priest is trown in instead along with his “Lovely Assistant”, the volcano promptly begins to violently erupt. I think the film makers were trying to say that they had found the “True Religion”
