David Allen
Feature Narrative

The entire production history of The Primevals sounds like the plot of a film. 

Conceptualised in the seventies, shot in the nineties, with director Allen working on the project until his passing in 1999. 

The Primevals was finally completed in the 2000s, premiering in 2023. 

A film that was a labour of love and fandom.

The results are a lost world epic and a cult classic in the making. 

From its opening sequences of an epic battle between Sherpas and a yeti you know that you’re in for a joy ride of heroes, heroines, and stop motion mayhem!

 In The Primevals David Allen – whose career included special visual effects on The Stuff, stop motion animation on The Howling, and chief puppeteer on Willow – created a genre film that combined everything you need: adventure, action, science fiction and more. 

A true undiscovered gem a true cinematic treat!
