On a naval expedition to Antarctica, three men and reporter Maggie Hathaway crash-land in a crater 1000 m below sea level. There, they encounter steamy tropical forest, dinosaurs, carnivorous plants, and human footprints, as Maggie's clothes become more and more abbreviated. Written by

This story was allegedly inspired by the discovery, in 1947, of an area of inexplicably warm water in Antarctica. See more »
As Dr. Carl is kidnapping Maggie and bringing her to his cave for the first time, we see a long shot of the mouth of the cave - look close and you can see the rubber raft that Maggie will row there later in the film, tied up next to Dr. Carl's reed boat. At this point the rubber boat should be back at camp, with the crew. See more »
Your goal, gentlemen: Antarctica. Five million square miles of terra incognate, but your job to make it just a little less incognate.

This is very fun to watch. It has cheesy 50's clothing and hairstyles, poor effects to make you snicker, and lots of fun elements and charm that can only be found in a dino film. A good way to spend some time with a friend on a friday night. Worth seeing if you like cheesy movies. A note:The sound effects for when the Tyranoaurus Rex is roaring was used in many other films, including a James Bond film and in spielberg's film "DUEL".
