Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)

Beneath the Planet of the Apes

Director: Ted Post

Writers: Paul Dehn (Story by Paul Dehn and Mort Abrahams)

(Characters created by Pierre Boulle)

First off I love that poster especially the plot synopsis on the right side.  It so perfectly and fantastically describes the movie.  Going into these sequels I was expecting total crap.  With Beneath, the first of four, I was a little let down that the first hour was pretty much a rehash of the first film.  Then Brent heads underground and encounters mutant radiation humans with psychic powers and things get a little crazy.  Also I love that this series seems to pride itself on its bleak endings, with Beneath having the darkest of them all I think.  Really glad I decided to watch!
