The first 12 minutes of this film is PERFECT....great great Steampunk elements...(cool digging machine which has a great Bridge set)...and then they arrive at the earth's core and suddenly it becomes a bad rubber monster movie. The weird thing is, though, that Doug McClure and Peter Cushing are awesome...very good performances....its just those damn rubber monsters Wink

Regardless, its still a fun movie.

Let me know what you think, Cory. It is still a fun film even though it gets kind of cheesy sometimes.

I've got the Doug McClure boxed set, and I have to say that To The Earth's Core was amazingly cheesy!  Perhaps I'm not as used to it yet, but oh my - even I thought Mr Cushing was going a bit far!  Loved him though, I have such a weak spot for the absent-minded professor archtype.  Not so much for Doug McClure though.

Absolutely! I was discussing this with a friend just recently. My love of all things under the great steampunk parasol was definitely sparked by this film when I saw it on its release in 1976, at the age of eight. Credit must also go to George Pal's The Time Machine, and to a lesser extent, Robert Stevenson's The Island At The Top Of The World.

However, it was only within the last year or so that I came to realise that a whole sub-culture of like-minded individuals existed, and that there was even a defining term to encompass the genre.
