The Mole People 1956 5 out of 10

           The Mole People 1956  5 out of 10

The Mole People is your typical scientists discover a hidden or lost world underground society, that is run by a tribe of Albinos, that mistake them for gods, then decide they aren't gods after all and try to kill them movie.  The  fight scenes are like something out of the 1960's Batman TV series with the scientists using their flashlight to ward them away. The scientists discover that the Albinos have enslaved a race of goofy looking Mole People to harvest the mushrooms they live on.  The Mole People on the awesome movie posters above turn out not to be all that menacing or even bad after all.  The scientists are just looking to escape this underground realm and take with them a cute blond that for some reason isn't an Albino (Genetic Freak). The scientists eventually free the Mole People from their slavery using them to attack the Albinos and thus seek their freedom.   Of course they escape (no big spoiler here) and make it make to the surface at the end all to have a shocking and unnecessary death of one of the characters at the end of the film to an earthquake.   Like most of these lost civilization movies--the lost civlization is completely destroyed and hidden from the outside world again at the end.  It was a decent chessy sci-fi adventure movie that reminded me a little of The Time Machine (The Morlocks)  and several old StarTrek episodes.   The Movie Posters and Trailer are more exciting than the film itself
