3 stars out of 5 -- [With] insane man-in-suit monsters....The fire-breathing toad is a highlight...
It's the type of movie you can send your kids to, but only if you don't much like them. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
The movie is shown like a museum fossil without any enthusiasm. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
El Pais (Spain)
Rating: 1/4 -- Doug and the Professor sneak around one strange man-eating vegetable, and there's another one -- which is the original vegetable, photographed from a new angle. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- As low budget creature features go, this one's good fun.

Rating: 3/5 -- Good, old-fashioned rubber-monster movie fun.
They face strange bat-bird beasts which, like renegades from a Toho monster movie, are charming....It remains thoroughly entertaining...
Sight and Sound
Peter Cushing (THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK) stars as Dr. Abner Perry, a Victorian scientist who has invented an enormous boring machine. Accompanied by his financial backer David Innes (Doug McClure, MAVERICK), he undertakes an experiment that will take him deep into the Earth's crust. Unfortunately he doesn't know the strength of his own creation, and the machine carries them all the way to the enormous cavern at the center of the Earth. There, the scientists discover an incredible world populated by a prehistoric human race. The humans are ruled over by despotic, telepathic bird-monsters who use them for food and labor. The visitors decide to attempt to free the humans, while the charms of one slave in particular (Caroline Munro, THE BLACK CAT) do not go unremarked.
