- Director: Cy Endfield

- IMDb user rating: 6.8

- Runtime: 101 minutes

Author Jules Verne’s follow-up to “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea'' inspired this sci-fi adventure with a Civil War twist. Stranded on a remote island, Union soldiers must contend with a host of giant creatures. Ray Harryhausen’s special effects and a score from Bernard Herrmann help lift the material above the standard B-movie fare.
