PRISONERS OF THE LOST UNIVERSE (1984) **

Richard (Battlestar Galactica) Hatch and Kay (House) Lenz star in this low budget mix of sword and sorcery and sci-fi silliness as two modern day Los Angelians who in circumstances too stupid to mention (Okay, they stumble into a matter transference chamber during an earthquake, are you happy?) wind up in another dimension where they get chased by cavemen with glowing eyes, green faced dudes and an evil badly dubbed John Saxon. (They basically made him up to look and sound like Sean Connery.) It’s pretty lame in every way and the leads are bland as hell, but it moves along at a steady clip and the Blind Dead influenced zombies in the graveyard are pretty cool. This was one of the first movies to go directly to Showtime (with good reason). Scenes from this later turned up in Stranded in Space.
