This was one of my favorites growing up.  If it doesn't make a great deal of sense, that's probably because it was originally a Turkish mini-series (with a different title that didn't give away the film's twist) edited down to feature length for American theatrical release.  Sure, it's looney beyond description, but when you're a kid, it's all about towheaded cro magnons, dinosaurs, troglodytes, and laser guns.  People always knock this kind of movie for being unrealistic, but more "relevant" flicks like "Quest For Fire" and "Clan of The Cave Bear" always seemed so dull to me.  Give me "One Million Years B.C.", "When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth", and "Yor",  with all their anachronisms and babe-like knuckle draggers any day.  Crying out for a DVD release and a soundtrack reissue.

I believe you are all missing the underlying movement of yor.   The film is a  deeply poetic and highly visual masterpiece that is a sort of filmic journey into our future weary consciousness.

Yor was originally a mini-series that was a Turkish-Italian co-production.  Dude I haven't seen anything this cheesy in a long time (well I lied, I just saw Ator).  The props are cheap, the acting is bad ,but overall it's fun.  The actors seem to be enjoying themselves.  I wish they still made movies like these.
Rebb Brown has about as much charisma as a loaf of bbread but the villian is kind of cool.  The cave reatures have to be seen to be belived!
They have to re-release this movie in the U.S.  More fun than a
laundry bafg full of kittens!  

The orginal cut of this movie was 8 hours long.

 I saw "Yor" in September 1983 on a double bill with "Krull" at a $1 movie theater.Yes, 2 bad movies on the same bill. It was the most fun that I had that summer. Even at 15, I realized that "Yor" was a cheesy affair. The dinosaurs are totally fake, you can see Reb's dark hair underneath the blonde wig and the awful dialogue just begs for sarcastic callback lines (a la "MST3K"). I would place this flick alongside "Plan 9 From Outer Space" as one of the most deliriously enjoyable bad movies of all time. I also enjoyed "Krull" whose SPFX seemed cool at the time, but now look as cheesy as "Yor". Check it out on DVD and you'll see what I mean. Meanwhile, let's get "Yor" released on DVD so we can savor its badness in a crystal clear, widescreen format.

Holy, Frig! YOR!!!!!!I remember seeing this movie in the theatre when I was a kid. Then, it disappeared forever. I thought I may have dreamt of it, but does exist! Amazing. Thanks, guys.

I didn't pay much attention to the movie. But the song DID get stuck in my head.

lol that's gotta  be the funniest review ever :)  I know the subject matter lends itself quite readily to ridicule but you've done an outstanding job!  I couldn't stop laughing!

I grew up watching Yor and Airwolf, and never thought I'd hear about them as an adult :)

I saw Yor in the theater, where my favorite memory is the slightly embossed cardboard cutout of Reb Brown in the lobby. While his stone axe and leather loincloth looked quite fetching, my eyes were most drawn to his short, carefully styled hair, not the mop-top wig he wore in the movie. A true collector's item.

So...people like Yor? For real?

That's even more unbelievable than Reb Brown's hair. The whole movie with that silly mop on his head, and that empty Reb Brown look on his face. The twist is fun I guess, but this movie is nowhere near as entertaining as ridiculous romps like Sword and the Sorcerer, or even Deathstalker. All the good violence is spent in the opening battle with the dinosaur face, and the rest of the movie has to rely on lame action scenes and ugly everything, with only the occasional lunacy to entertain (i.e. giant bat, some hilarious technology). The girls aren't even attractive, and "women in rags" has to be at least among the top 3 draws in this kind of cheese. It's one thing to watch a terrible 80s caveman/sword fantasy flick, it's another to be forced to endure it without some kind of entertainment to lighten the load. Gore, nudity, attractive women, boom mics, anything.

Even in a career as spectacularly awful as Reb Brown's, this is barely a highlight. And only on paper. At least Howling II was completely awful AND featured Christopher Lee with a midget sidekick. This film is pure pain.

It's a trick. Get an axe.

Critters 2 is a work of art.

YOR: HUNTER OF THE FUTRE is on Imaginecasting. Where you can create your own ideal cast. I think American Gladiator Michael O'hearn a.k.a Titus would make a excellent YOR. the-future

You for got one quote; a line that sums up almost every bad movie I've ever seen.

Yor: "We will need a lot more hemp before we're through."

Anyone else notice how they kept using the same 'villagers screaming' track 4 times throughout the movie and kept on repeating it? I heard the same woman screaming about 5 times in a row in the last villagers massacred scene and was laughing my head off. I also liked the head bad caveman who calls Yor a bastard, surely there needs to be the institution of marriage before people can start calling each other bastards. This movie made no sense at all. This is right in the middle of the bell curve as far as entertaining bad movies go, reminded me of a less funny caveman version of Flash Gordon.

And Yor's hair! He always looked so fresh no matter what pratfalls had befallen him, what a guy!
