One Million Years BC


“This is the way it was,” claimed posters for One Million Years BC, convincing a generation of school kids that cavemen fought jerky, stop-motion dinosaurs with spears and that troglodyte cave-girls looked like Raquel Welch and wore fur bikinis. Forty years on, Hammer’s mammoth epic has aged like a prehistoric fossil.

Yet, its story of grunting crusties battling a menagerie of T-rexes and giant turtles across a volcanic landscape (actually Canary Islands Tenerife and Lanzarote) remains an important cinematic landmark.
