Beyond Atlantis

For Trailers from Hell this week, David Decoteau talks us through Eddie Romero's "Beyond Atlantis."  Here's the blurb:

Prolific Filipino exploitation king Eddie Romero takes a break from his Blood Island and girls-in-chains movies to try his hand at a pseudo-family oriented aquatic fantasy. It's still squarely aimed at the drive-in trade, but it's much less raunchy than the usual tropical action dualler. Makes a nice double bill with Romero's similar Twilight People, made earlier the same year, also for Corman competitor Dimension Pictures.
