Storyline

Through a series of coincidences, Carrie, Dan and Dr. Hartmann all fall through a teleporter device Hartmann has invented. Transported to a what appears to be a prehistoric world in a parallel universe and unable to find the Doctor, Dan and Carrie must figure out a way to get back home. Before they can do that, however, they must deal with tribes of savage cavemen, as well as brutal warlord named Kleel who has taken a liking to Carrie and seems to be unusually well-supplied with Earth technology.

You CAN get this movie on DVD
22 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie when I was a child in the 80s! Recently, as a birthday present for my dad, I bought him a 100 movie pack SciFi classics (can be found on Amazon). Upon looking through the DVDs, I saw this one and remembered it from when I was little. Sure enough, I found it just as good as I remembered it then except I acknowledge how campy it is. But I still love it! Anyway, if you want this movie, it is available in the 100 movie pack/SCIFI Classics which is selling for about $39.99. NOTE: the quality is basically as if someone took the original movie and just transferred it onto DVD. There's no touch-ups or remastering. Each DVD contains about 4 movies, 2 on each side. Have fun watching! I did!!
