Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

An unsuccessful touring circus encounters a forbidden valley full of prehistoric animals, and captures its massive allosaurus leader. Guess what - it escapes to terrorise the cast. A very watchable fantasy adventure, though as with other films Ray Harryhausen had a hand in, the stop-motion special effects put the sketchily rendered human characters and routine plot in the shade. At least, the score from The Big Country composer Jerome Moross stirs the blood occasionally, too.
