Planet Of The Apes (1968) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The Saga Begins! Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall star in this legendary science fiction master piece. Astronaut Taylor (Heston) crash lands on a distant planet ruled by apes who use a primitive race of humans for experimentation and sport. Soon Taylor finds himself among the hunted, his life in the hands of a benevolent chimpanzee (McDowall). Things light up once Taylor reveals himself, reveals that he a human, can talk!
So Cornelius (McDowall) and Zira (Kim Hunter) his wife, risk everything to stand up for, and save this human’s life. After a failed trial, and a failed attempt of human castration, Taylor escapes with Nova (Linda Harrison) his female counterpart to the Forbidden Zone. But there he doesn’t like what he sees!
A really good movie. Kind of boring at times but I guess back in the 70’s it was high quality entertainment. The make up was awesome. The plot was good, and the acting great. Overall this is a classic you have to see no matter what.
Synopsis:An astronaut crew crash lands on a planet in the distant future where intelligent talking apes are the dominant species, and humans are the oppressed and enslaved.
