Doug McClure's fourth Amicus studio's fantasy/adventure isn't a sequel to the first three, all of which were adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs stories.

McClure plays a turn-of-the-century explorer who travels via a diving bell to an ocean-floor kingdom ruled by Cyd Charisse.

Younger viewers will be interested in the film's roster of monsters: a giant octopus, a mollusk creature, an eel monster, and several others -- none of which are exceptionally well done, but they're all energetic.

Nice sets and matt paintings create the proper Lost Kingdom mood. Directed by Kevin Connor. Also starring Daniel Massey, Michael Gothard, Peter Gilmore, Shane Rimmer, and Lea Brodie.

Despite the flaws of this and the three previous Amicus studios fantasy/adventure yarns, they still remian the most amnbitious Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations to date (or Burroughs-like, in this case).
