Jungle guide David Marchand is kidnapped by a tribe of natives who want to sacrifice him to their white rhino god.

David rejects the advances of Queen Kari and sides with the blondes, which leads to him being imprisoned in the dungeon. Can David find some way of returning to his own time? And if he does, what will be awaiting him when he returns? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

This was originally set to be the "A" feature on a double bill with The Old Dark House (1963), but after studio head James Carreras pronounced it not up to Hammer's standards, it was edited down from its original 91-minute length and released as a support feature on a double bill with The Devil Rides Out (1968).

Sexy but also incredibly dull.
26 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Prehistoric Women" is a terrible film and probably the worst thing to come from Hammer Studios. If there is worse, I don't know about it and I would appreciate for you to email me to set me straight! Unfortunately, it's a really bad movie but not necessarily an enjoyably bad film...but it comes rather close. It IS kitschy, silly and will make you wonder why they bothered making such a pile of crap in the first place. And, you know it is bad when it is willed with beautiful and sexy women...and it's STILL boring!

When the film begins, a hunter (Michael Latimer) wanders into the territory of some very unfriendly natives. They capture him and toss him into the territory of some brunette savages that have perfectly coiffed hair, hot bodies, perfect English and an overwhelming desire to beat the crap out of the blonde women and have their way with the hunter. But David the hunter is an egalitarian sort of guy and doesn't want to have his way with the cruel brunette (Martine Beswick), even though she is smoking hot, because he is put off by the plight of the blondies. So, to punish him for not being a hot stud, they toss him into a cave with all their enslaved men and he helps to eventually lead a slave revolt.

While the plot doesn't sound 100% dumb, it IS. The film is chock full of dancing...very, very bad dancing which I think was choreographed by a goat. And, the dialog is just god-awful and clichéd. Is there anything good about the film other than the generally beautiful women wearing loin cloths? No.
