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.

Trivia

Richard Hatch was ill through part of the dubbing and thus his character's voice can be heard to fluctuate. See more »

Goofs

Dan breaks the chain with a gas-filled pod, but the plant could not possibly contain the required force. The chain is half-inch iron, which would have a yield-strength of 40,000 pounds per square inch(PSI). The pod could not contain that much energy. See more »

Quotes

Carrie Madison: [Carrie and Dan are climbing a cliff, and Dan helps her up by pushing on her bottom] I am quite able to do this by myself, so if you don't mind, please take your hand off my butt!

4 stars out of 10 - all of them for Kay Lenz
10 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This stereotypical, low-grade fantasy lacks both the budget and the directorial imagination to be really exciting. The only epic thing about it is the music score. The film is too cheesy for most adults, but it also has some unpleasant scenes that are unsuitable for kids - making you wonder what audience exactly they had in mind. What kept me watching it is Kay Lenz: she's both endearing and feisty, and she looks particularly sexy when she's angry. Her face has a great "bone structure" - she looks a bit like Kim Basinger (trivia note: they were born the same year, 1953), only more beautiful. And she can even keep a straight face through lines like "But....he's green!" (when the male lead suggests that they should follow a man). Take Lenz out of the movie and you don't have a movie - just a midget, a giant, an evil John Saxon, and other stereotypes. (*1/2)
