Carrington describes the "Pliocene" human-ancestors as being primeval worm-like creatures. This description would be better suited to the Cambrian or Paleozoic times. In the time of Pliocene (Greek for "beginning of the recent"), recognizable man-like creatures were already showing up. The australopithecines came around during the later part of this time.

This film scared me as a child and I find it chilling today. The script is tight and well written with hardly a wasted word. The cast is having a lot of fun and there are no irrelevant scenes. The tension builds from the very beginning and never lets up. Add to all this the weird audio and you may not want to watch this alone. Probably the best of the 50's--60's UFO movies. One can only wonder why this is not on DVD.
