The Mole People 02/26/19

Scream Factory

Not enough love is set aside for this ambitious, under-budgeted Lost Civilization epic. John Agar and Cynthia Patrick find love in an ancient citadel of albinos that worships a Death Ray and enslaves a race of Subterranean Humanoid Underground Dwellers — Mole Men, what else?   It’s unconvincing and the production lacks polish, but it’s also got clever story gimmicks and sympathetic monsters, so it gets a warm reception at CineSavant Central. Plus it co-stars Hugh Beaumont, Alan Napier and Nestor Paiva, gentlemen all. On Blu-ray from Scream Factory.
