The film lost me right from the get go when the guy ran away from the girls
30 June 2013 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

I have this film on a collection of 50 horror films; and while this film certainly has some elements of horror I would say it is more of a soft core porn flick. There is a lots of nudity in this one, and while they never really lingered on the actual sex scenes for too long, the scenes showing topless women did go on, so did the ones showing their butt cheeks and even their front areas. This is the one thing that kept this movie from being very boring and not worth a look; however, if you like 70's natural girls then this film has them in spades! To bad they could not have a decent story to go along with the girls and nudity, but I am thinking about the best story you could do here is just forget the soft and add a hard to it.

The story from what I can gather is a guy has recently returned from Vietnam and is just walking the countryside. He gets beer poured on him by hippies and later three naked hippie girls would literally try to have their way with him. He runs for it, making me scratch my head as he awoke to most guys wildest dreams. Two other naked girls even join the other three to chase him through the woods. Well he hurts himself and ends up waking up to find a beautiful water nymph who he promptly falls in love with. So no to three to five hot chicks, but yes to one water soaked vague girl. Yes, he is pretty dense, makes that guy from A Touch of Satan seem like he had a good head on his shoulders. Well, things happen, the guy makes a friend and soon learns of the horrible coven of witches. He also learns the only way to be with the water nymph is to get rid of his soul. So he ends up making a deal with an evil witch whom his friend says you cannot trust, yet the friend instantly believes her when she tells him some information that is obviously made up.

So yes, about the only thing worth watching is the nudity. The story is just to all over the place and the kills to few and far between for this one to be considered a horror film first. The girls for the most part are attractive, the the main witch has a nice body, but her face is not quite up to par. The main girl the guy falls in love with is pretty cute, but a couple of those hippies that were trying to have their way with our hero were cuter. The main witch also does not really know how to curse anyone as the person she put her final curse on ended up pretty much right where he wanted to be thanks to her curse. So copious amounts of nudity, not much of a story and someone should tell that guy that if he wants his soul gone all he has to do is hold his fist in the air and summon Gorgo of the thousand faced moon and he/she will be glad to take it and even give a little something in return.
