This isn't exactly a horror movie, more like an adventure movie actually, but nevertheless, it's a lot of fun! Sure, the prologue is pretty dumb and the first twenty minutes or so are typical of a 50- 60's-B-movie, but after that, it sure gets good! The king of the people living under the ground is amusingly played by Alan Napier and slightly outshines all the other not-so-good actors! The mole people look cool and it's nice to see a monster movie where you can feel sympathy for the monsters instead of being scared by them, as that was pretty unusual for old monster movies. The dialog is cheesy but kinda funny. The ending brings mixed feelings to me though and the majority of the acting is crummy, but when it's good, it's really good! Thumbs up for the mole people!

Not bad, very entertaining!Reviewed bymattiasflgrtll6Vote: 7/10
Yeah, yeah, yeah. So it's cheesy bw 50's sci fi. But it's GREAT cheesy bw50's sci fi! The Mole People would be campy if it weren't so earnest. Ittakes itself so seriously it even begins with a pseudodocumentary preludeexplaining the hollow Earth theory.
Part of the fun is seeing future TV faves Hugh Beaumont (Beaver's dad), andAlan Napier (Alfred the butler) teamed with legendary 50's hack actors JohnAgar and Nestor Paiva.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 gave Mole People the full treatment and it wasone of the funniest MST3K episodes ever. For the full effect I'd suggest youview the straight version first and then try to find the MST3K episode.
"The Mole People" isn't your usual '50s sci-fi flick. It has a slightly more intellectual side to it: a combination of the Hollow Earth Theory and a look at ancient civilizations. The plot is that a pair of archaeologists uncover an underground civilization consisting of descendants of the Sumerians. The ancient culture takes the archaeologists for gods after the archaeologists' flashlight hurts their eyes, since five millenniums underground have made them photosensitive.
Yeah, it's pretty far-fetched. The title characters are the civilization's slaves: burrowing creatures with arachnid heads and webbed hands. Overall, the movie is pretty original, and very enjoyable.
Starring John Agar (Shirley Temple's first husband), Hugh Beaumont (the dad on "Leave It to Beaver"), and Alan Napier (Alfred on the 1960s "Batman").
By "Asia" at the beginning of the movie, I'm guessing that they meant either the Middle East or Central Asia.
