Mick Garris on

The Lost World

Released 1960
Distributor 20th Century Fox

Irwin Allen’s 1960 big studio remake of the 1925 classic boasts a stellar cast and big sets, many appropriated from the previous year’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. An after-school favorite for decades, but it has more in common with One Million BC than Arthur Conan Doyle.
