Did You Know?

Julie Ege had just given birth and was not feeling too well so retired to bed early during the shoot. As a result, the crew thought she was stuck up and contrived to keep her out of shot as much as possible, much to the annoyance of Hammer in London.See more »

Incredible! A fruit of anthropological studies in the Seventies., 9 April 2001
Author: sam_3 from Tokyo

This film has got so much in it. Prehistoric society, adventure, romance, true brotherhood, violence, sex, religion; all depicted abundantly..without a single word uttered!!! And how come it sucks so bad? This film will make you rethink the origin of humanity. If this were the product of anthropology, you would rather defy Darwinian theory and Hegelian synthesis all together. You cannot bear to watch this even with your brain shut down. And now you are thinking, "I've got to see this." I warned you. I take no responsibility whatsoever should you regret spending over an hour staring at this piece of art. Well, I did warn you. This should be forgotten and buried for ever.
