A simply amazing release!

The prehistoric classic with special effects by Ray Harryhausen finally makes it to blu-ray and what a great presentation it is.

Raquel Welch is Luana, probably the sexiest cavewoman on the entire planet who befriends a brutish caveman named Tumak played by John Richardson.

He is kicked out of his tribe and wonders the desert until he runs into Raquel's tribe and after a bit his behavior leads him to be kicked out of that tribe as well, but this time Luana goes with him.

The many dinosaurs except a lizard and a huge spider are the work of Harryhausen. The Allosaurus is his best creation for this film and the scene where it attacks Luana's tribe is a standout in film history.

What is really great about this release is it is a 2 disc set which also contain the International Version of the film which runs about 10 minutes longer than any version we have seen so far. Both the US Version and the International version are remastered and look beautiful.

There are plenty of extras including a poster gallery, interviews with Raquel Welch (which is interesting and amusing), Martine Beswick (who plays Nupondi) and then an archive interview with Harryhausen himself. And just wait until you see the reversible sleeve for this one!!

A huge thanks to Kino for putting out one of the best releases of the year so far.
