One of my all-time favourite awful films. I love the original H.G. Wells story, so I went to see it in the cinema before I saw any reviews and couldn't believe how bad it was. If it's ever on the television now I have to watch it. It was close to being a great film in the hands of Richard Stanley and the story of his removal from set (and sneaking back on in make up as one of the mutants) and replacement with John Frankenheimer is a fascinating one in itself and worth googling. The make up and creature effects are spot on, and the atmosphere is still pretty good, but Brando and Kilmer are on another planet and the final product is a terrible mess. I still have a strange soft spot for it though.
great book, not so great movie – not even remotely close to being in the book
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
