Memorable quote by Dr. Abner Perry: "You cannot mesmerise me! I'm British!"

This is the second of three sci-fi adventures based on novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first being 1975's The Land That Time Forgot and the third being The People That Time Forgot.

A Victorian scientist -- Dr. Abner Perry (Peter Cushing) -- and his young American backer -- David Innes (Doug McClure) -- set off in their new earth-boring machine for a short test on a Welsh mountain. Unfortunately the thing tunnels out of control at ferocious speed and they end up in an enormous cavern at the centre of the earth --  the twilight world of pellucidar. Here they find prehistoric monsters, man-eating plants and cavemen enslaved to the Meyhas (Mahars) --  evil psychic, pterodactyl-type creatures with extra-sensory abilities. They are captured, and taken to the Meyhas' underground empire. They then set out to free the slaves and themselves from the evil that has dominated this underground realm for untold generations.
