"The Land Unknown" (1957)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

A science team crash-lands in a deep crater in Antarctica, where they find a prehistoric world.I'll be honest: the main reason I watched this was because I'd found out it was where the dinosaur roar sound effect from Duel came from. As a movie, it was pretty much what I expected: a fairly typical 50s monster movie with low-budget visual effects.

The movie's explanation for the presences of a tropical prehistoric world in the frozen Antarctic is intelligent and plausible. The characters don't act like stereo-types, so the plot avoids being predictable. Don't be too critical "
