As you can derive from the title as well as from the tagline "Set your sights on the Tastiest Game of all", this is a cheap and extremely anti-feminist exploitation version of the legendary cinema classic "The Most Dangerous Game", with abducted slave girls (of all ethnics) instead of shipwrecked passengers and constant sexist dialogs instead of genuine suspense. But hey, who's complaining, because "The Woman Hunt" is one of the most wondrously tasteless and vastly entertaining movies of its kind. With a team including Eddie Romero (director), Jack Hill (writer) and star Sid Haig, you simply know not to expect a masterpiece of plotting or sophistication, but you definitely are guaranteed to witness thrills, bloody action and loads of nudity. Ironically enough, the titular hunt never comes or at least not as it was intended. The first three quarters of the film revolve on the "recruitment" of the unsuspecting ladies (for example, luring two innocent girls on a yacht) and the second half focuses on their escape alongside an employee rebelling against his boss. The big chief and his wealthy businessmen guests go after them, of course, but the hunt is unprepared and hectic. Meanwhile, there are large amounts of mutual intrigues between the hunters as well as the preys. The obscurity status of "The Woman Hunt" is very undeserved, if you ask me, as it's definitely much better than the majority of contemporary (s)exploitation movies. The tropical island setting is magnificent, all female cast members (either good or bad) are stunningly gorgeous, Sid Haig obviously had a fun time sprouting offensive lines and there are some highly memorable moments of gratuitous violence to enjoy. Of course you've seen this premise several times before already, and probably better, but "The Woman Hunt" somehow feels refreshing and at least the script attempts to add ingenious little story elements, like for instance the sex-identity crisis of Lisa Todd's character and the unexpected anti-climax end shot. I'm probably way too generous in my praising and rating for this movie, but what the hell, it's sensational and super-rancid 70's goodness that comes with the highest possible recommendation.
