Goofs

When the Mutates raid the Norm caves to seize women, the first captive they take is Ruth, who has been imprisoned in a cage and is wearing a long, flowing white dress. But when the Mutates are seen a short time later leading the group of captured women back to their land, Ruth is suddenly wearing a shorter dress of a completely different style and obviously darker color. Since the Mutates were doing battle with the Up River Men while they were kidnapping the women, it is highly unlikely Ruth would have been given time to change clothes before leaving the caves.

A Thought-Provoking Sci-Fi Morality Tale
22 March 2011 | by (Los Angeles, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A thought-provoking morality tale involving the dangers of atomic power, the thin veneer of civilization, and the pitting of good forces vs. bad ones. The apocalyptic glimpses of New York City in ruins (courtesy of matte painter Irving Block) and the quasi-Medieval/ancient Mediterranean costumes were definitely inspired by the science fiction pulp magazines of the 1940s, as well as the script. Acting fairly good, especially by Margaret Field (mother of Sally). The action moves swiftly, the sets are imaginative (especially the sewers where the Norms live and the tunnel that is beneath the river) and the film has a mood of haunting sadness that stays with one. A fairly expensive-looking production from producers Pollexfen, Wisberg, and Zugsmith, certainly costing more than Pollexfen and Wisberg's previous Sci-Fi classic, The Man from Planet X.
