Trivia:
The actress who plays Wana (credited as Adrienne Bourbeau) is believed by many film buffs to actually be Adrienne Barbeau - an extremely unlikely possibility, seeing as how Ms. Barbeau, having been born in 1945, would have been only 12 or 13 at the time this film was made.See more »

Utterly ridiculous: a must-see for "so bad it's good" fans, 11 March 2012
Author: MartianOctocretr5 from Redondo Beach, CA

"Oh, Priestess, we request permission to find mates!" The narrator explains: "Nature made a mistake." Two independent tribes that mistrust but leave each other alone finally interact, as an alliance to fight some other weird tribe is proposed, then rejected. A parrot is perched somewhere, and periodically shows up to mock the characters, as if we the audience aren't doing that already.

Basically, some prehistoric guys and gals from each tribe run around the forest and occasionally meet each other. There's one girl (from the "pretty woman" tribe) who beats the snot out of a baby crocodile, and the monster people show up briefly. Her tribe has women with 50's hair styles, shaved legs, lipstick, and other make-up. The other tribe has women with buck teeth and attitudes that scare their sheepish men.

Beware of the soundtrack. They actually use some of the same music as the infamous "Plan 9 from Outer Space," and this movie makes that one look good by comparison. The acting is oafery, the director must have been out in the sun too long, and the story line is uhh, was there one? There's only one way to watch this: MST3K style. Get your buddies together and mock the thing, when it isn't bashing itself that is.
