Susan Cabot recalled an incident that happened during the scene where the Viking women first set out in the boat to look for their men. She said that there were 11 women in the "Viking ship", which was being towed out to sea by a boat that was out of camera range. When the scene was over and the towing boat was supposed to stop, they discovered that the man piloting the tow boat had fallen asleep, and no matter how loudly they yelled at him to wake up, the sounds of the ocean drowned them out. The bottom of the "Viking ship" began to fill up with water, and out of the 11 women on the sip, only Cabot and Abby Dalton could swim. They finally caught the attention of two passing surfers, who took a couple of the girls and headed to shore, but by the time the rest of the girls and the boat reached land, which was the base of a cliff jutting out into the ocean, the tide was beginning to rise and the sand at the base of the cliff was quickly being covered over by water. The girls had to climb up the face of this cliff, with the water slowly rising after them, until they got to the top of it. There they ran into some film-crew members who had been searching for them, and they took the girls back to the set on buses. See more »

Entertainingly stupid hokum from producer / director Roger Corman, notable mostly for that hilariously long title. People shouldn't expect anything from it other than undemanding fun for lovers of micro budget schlock. We've got a very attractive cast in sexy outfits, being made to deliver some truly (and truly funny) awful lines. The special effects are anything but special, but they're endearing in their own way.
A gang of viking women are really missing their men, who have been lost at sea for three years. Accompanied by a token dude, Ottar (Jonathan Haze), they build their own boat and set sail. Their boat attacked by an ocean phenomenon dubbed "The Vortex" and, yes, a huge sea serpent, they wash ashore on an island populated by a hostile tribe called the Grimolts. They refuse to be treated as prisoners or slaves and fight back with passion.
At least Corman knows to fill the cast with some stunning looking women: Abby Dalton as our heroine Desir, Susan "The Wasp Woman" Cabot as the duplicitous Enger, June Kenney as Desir's innocent younger sister Asmild, and Betsy Jones-Moreland as Thyra. Richard Devon, a Corman regular during this time, looks weary as our villain Stark, and Bradford Jackson is a gas as he stiffly and ineptly portrays Desir's love interest Vedric. Jay Sayer is appropriately wormy as Starks' cowardly, useless son Senya. Gary Conway from "I Was a Teenage Frankenstein" plays the small part of Jarl.
This isn't totally lacking in atmosphere, and in addition to the (unintended?) laughs provided, there's also a fair amount of action and a nice, rousing score composed by Albert Glasser.
Be warned that the title sea serpent doesn't get to do all that much.
Five out of 10.
