I laughed myself silly watching this "epic" about several viking women going to sea to find their men, seemingly lost at sea. The women(all very good looking with their blonde hair flowing over their statuesque shoulders) construct a boat and sail only to be caught up in a whirlpool that sends them near a hideous sea serpent(looking like something bought at a five and ten store) and to the land of the Grimolts...a race of people that have enslaved all the unfortunate beings that land on their territory. The Grimolts are savages, and have enslaved the viking men. From here the film chronicles how the viking women get back with their viking men. As another reviewer stated, this is certainly not up to Roger Corman's standard good work with a small budget. Instead, this is a cheap movie with a ridiculous script, poorly acted leads(must be all that blonde hair going to everyone's head), and some of the most unbelievable costumes, sets, and special effects around. Yet, the film has a certain charm to it and I found myself enjoying it quite a bit. Some of the lines and situations are natural knee-slappers. Just wait till you see the scene at the Grimolt banquet when out of nowhere a pretty girl starts dancing to 50's style music in a sheepskin. The scene of the the fire-burning at the stakes is another belly-roller as the two lead vikings profess their love. Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent is a lot of fun to watch...some of the humour intentional and much of it unintentional.
