Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1970)


Bil’s rating (out of 5): B

USA, 1970.  , .  Story by , , Screenplay by Paul Dehn, based on characters created by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Taking place right after the original’s shocking ending, this film has Charlton Heston disappear beneath a cave and another astronaut () search the planet for him. What Franciscus finds on his journey is more contact with the ape people (Kim Hunter returns as the kindly doctor) and a weird underground cult of post-apocalyptic, corroding humans who worship a bomb (Victor Buono appears in a career-shaming role). Absolutely ridiculous, though some might find it fun precisely because of how cheesy it is.
