    Sorry penny.taylor, but you are mistaken .... a couple of them are UK/US co-productions but the rest are all British.

    Seriously, don't see Creatures the World Forgot. That's sound advice to live your life by.

    Though this "monster on the loose" flick fits firmly into the 50's sci-fi cycle; I wouldn't really consider it, or something like GORGO (both of which were directed by Eugene Lourie, whose THE COLOSSUS OF NEW YORK still remain AWOL on DVD; it's been around 30 years since I caught it late one Friday night on ATV), a "Prehistoric/Dinosaur" film.

    At The Earth's Core



    An old favourite of mine - a genuinely guilty pleasure. Not actual dinosaurs (I know none of them really are anyway, but you know what I mean!), but still.

    There's a very amusing Dr Who dinosaur story from the Jon Pertwee era with some crashingly dreadful special effects. Can't remember the title.

    Saying that it's a Dr Who story from the Jon Pertwee era with crashing dreadful special effects doesn't narrow it down much

    I watched At The Earth's Core with the commentary by director Kevin Connor last night, I enjoy the fantasy series of films he made in the 1970s, although I think this one was the weakest. Connor told how one of the extras lost a finger in a scene where a portcullis dropped and Doug McClure had to hack at it with an axe. The extras were all briefed to keep hands out of the way but this one did'nt, so I froze the picture and could clearly see the extra step back and look at his hand with a finger sliced down the length of it. OUCH!

    I seem to remember Mysterious Island had some monsters in it and Shepperton Studios was used for that one.

    That was Invasion of the Dinosaurs. Author J G Ballard wrote the screenplay for Hammer's When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth and was very proud of having written what was in his opinion the worst movie ever made!
