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.

Prisonarse of the lost Univarse
26 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was led to believe that this was a big pile of boring crap, but those folks were wrong. It's a big pile of enjoyable crap! C'mon! Early eighties dimension jumping nonsense. Sign me up! There's earthquakes in LA, and this causes a mad scientist, a TV presenter, and a handyman/kendo guy the TV presenter had a car crash with to fall into an intra-dimensional transporter and be whizzed off to some crazy other world that suspiciously looks like Earth with some cheap stuff added.

In this world, however, John Saxon is in charge! He's so macho he's wears a vest with nothing underneath. And he's shoots folks at random! And growls a lot. Plus, Mr Saxon has been involved in some of my favourite films, including Violent Naples, The Rat, The Cynic and The Fist, Tenebrae, Cannibal Apocalypse and Enter the Dragon. He's pretty much infallible like the Pope.

So in this film the scientist in order to keep himself alive has introduced dynamite and gunpowder to Saxon and therefore Saxon is all cocky about taking over the world. Pity that Kendo guy and TV presenter have teamed up with a green man, a guy who looks like Anthropophagus Beast, and an gay Irish dwarf thief to take Saxon down! I dunno how anyone thinks this film is boring because our team of heroes are going up against dwarfs with crappy glowing eye effects, fighting men painted gold around rocks that make you explode when you touch them, and cloaked zombie dudes who reminded me of the Blind Dead.

I'd say this one is a fair bet for Saxon fans and fans of folk who just like eighties films with eighties effects. I've got no complaints. It's even got a sudden abrupt ending that we all loved back then.
