A 27-word "caveman language" was devised for this movie, supposedly drawing on Phoenician, Latin, and Sanskrit sources. Some of the key words in this language are: "neecha" is "stop" or "come back"; "zak" is "gone" or "left"; "akita" is "look" or "see"; "neecro" is "bad" or "evil"; "m'kan" is "kill" or "killed"; "mata" is "dead"; "yo kita" is "go".

I've got to say this film is a lot of fun. The dinosaur effects were excellent for 1970, and the integration of the stop-motion footage with the live-action still has me wondering "How did they do that?" The film's female lead, Victoria Vetri, is my easily my favorite ex-Playmate actress; she's relentlessly beautiful in the role of Sanna, and surprisingly enough, her performance is as engaging and convincing as one could hope for in a "prehistoric" role. The location shooting is also a plus. All in all, it's a film to enjoy in spite of its silliness, and to laugh along with; not exactly "Citizen Kane", but one of the finest bad movies in existence.
