Not one reviewer or commentator has ever made a single positive remark about this film. Most cannot resist jibes at "The Incredibly Boring Actors" or "The Ridiculous Petrified Script." I must concur. Like most Jerry Warren movies, this is a thin, flat, insubstantial piece of nothingness. It was probably derived from Unknown World. The heroes and heroines encounter an old shipwrecked sailor who speaks in a slow monotone, and then a volcano that erupts for about one minute. I wish the Alpha DVD had included a bonus feature that quoted from the many negative reviews, one after the next. Also, it should have been a DVD double feature with Teenage Zombies, with which it originally played in theaters. For me, the only worthwhile moments were the stock footage shots of the old TWA four-prop propeller plane. Carradine's role is small.
