This third release from StudioCanal may not be produced by Amicus Productions, but it is still directed by Kevin Connor and stars Doug McClure. If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it. Only problem is, this is all getting rather repetitive. Doug McClure plays the exact same character he portrayed in both The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth’S Core. Only this time he doesn’t have an interesting sidekick such as

Amicus Productions, the “other” Hammer Horror film company – this is what it could be known as anyway, as a lot of their output was confused between the two. The Doctor Who films with Peter Cushing for example were Amicus, where quite a few fans actually think they were done by Hammer. This is one of the reasons that Amicus have quite the cult following, because they were Hammer, just (arguably) not as good. (I know, that comment could cause quite a debate).
The Land That Time Forgot is an example where cost was down, but actually they managed quite a good tale. Doug McClure, an often used Amicus action hero, plays Bowen Tyler – a sailor who along with other crew men (mostly British, where

Synopsis: After sinking a ship, a German submarine is taken over by the survivors of the wreckage. They soon find themselves stuck on a mysterious island where prehistoric creatures have survived…
To celebrate the 50th birthday of Amicus Productions, StudioCanal are releasing a number of previously unavailable titles. First up is The Land That Time Forgot. It’s based on a novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs (The man behind Tarzan and John Carter), which means plenty of questionable science and fun adventure.
The film starts with the pounding drums reminiscent of so many adventure B-Movies from the 1950s and ’60s. One must bear in mind that this film hit just between Jaws (1972) and Star Wars (1977), and as such was somewhat lost amongst the pioneering effects of Hollywood.
As the studio creators of some of Britain’s best fantastical horror titles, their spectacular styles and imaginative stories featuring man’s discoveries and subsequent battle against jaw dropping mythical creatures or extra-terrestrial life forms, have resulted in many of their films receiving cult status.
Warlords Of Atlantis
Aboard the Texas Rose, a professor of archaeology, his scientist son, and an engineer are on a quest to find the lost city of Atlantis. When a giant octopus attacks their ship,
The actress, who was married to John McEnery between 1973 and 1978, admits she wasn't looking for love when she began dating Bernie Greenwood in 2008 when they were introduced by a mutual friend.
But she's now so smitten with the physician, she's considering another walk down the aisle.
She tells Hello! magazine, "(Marriage is) definitely to be considered. (It's) on the radar... You don't necessarily expect to find the L-word when you're over 60. I had decided that I would forget boys - I couldn't be bothered with them any more. I hate to say it, but (upon meeting) I just folded into his arms. It was like, 'Oh, what a relief you're here.'"
And Beacham is hoping she and Greenwood, who is based in Spain and works in the U.K., will soon be able to move in together.
She explains, "(A long-distance relationship) has its limitations and it's becoming more and more obvious that we want to properly share our lives. I don't think we will ever move permanently away from England - we have two homes here - but it's about where we spend our quieter times. It's a long bus ride to Malibu, but I still work here, so we need to figure out where we are going to live. But that's a nice problem to have."
The former Dynasty star, 62, was married to actor John McEnery between 1973 and 1978, and after their divorce she dated a string of younger men.
After splitting from her last lover, 48-year-old model/singer Alfie Harrison, in February, the veteran performer used the web to land her next man.
She says, "I met him via the internet, something I had never used before. A mutual friend, who thought we'd get on well together, gave him my email address. He's a British doctor living in Spain but often commutes to the U.K. We began communicating and it was dizzying: we exchanged emails of such depth. It was extraordinary. Three weeks after our first email we arranged a date and he flew to my home in Malibu. I was quite scared because I knew we might not have the same chemistry in the flesh. But as soon as we met I felt I knew his soul. My daughters have nicknamed him Dr Love. It's like being a teenager all over again."
But Beacham is determined to keep her new love's identity under wraps because he's not ready to step into the spotlight with her.
She adds, "At the moment he wants to remain secret as he hates the showbizzy stuff."
