Storyline

In medieval France, traveler Pygar tells he-man Karzan (Maciste in the French version) of his recent journey to a place called Antigua, and of its entire community of Amazons promising undreamed of sexual satisfaction to any man who comes upon them. More importantly, Pygar tells of a fortune in gold. Karzan/Maciste, is persuaded to undertake the journey in search of riches, unaware that Pygar is in collusion with the Amazon Queen to actually deliver Maciste as a slave stud to help rejuvenate the race. The expedition is ambushed, Maciste is placed into the Amazons' service, and Pygar, along with one of the Amazon women, Yuka, attempt to swipe a fortune in gold for themselves. Written by Artemis-9

a no budget titties flick
25 June 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Directed by Jess Franco, I don't think I have to introduce the man. Known for gore, XXX flicks and ultra trash flicks. This flick here is OOP and only available on VHS, the hunt is out for the VML Dutch Video which I just saw.

It's a perfect example why Jess is so much loved but also hated. It really had nothing to offer. It was just made to show girls walking around naked. Typical Jess.

The main lead was done by Wal Davis, it was his first flick but he never made it into the film business and stopped in 1977. In fact I won't go to deep into the acting because none of them was worth watching. It's really as wooden as it could be but one thing to notice is the fact that Lina Romay was involved here as Yuka. This was one of her first flicks but she really made it into the European horror and exploitation flicks, too many to mention. She wasn't afraid to show her body and even posed for men magazines. The funny thing is that she married Jess Franco in 2008, and made her last flick with him Paula-Paula (2010) just before she died in 2012 from cancer. She was even seen in the porn flick Angel Of Death 2 (2007) from Andreas Bethmann where even Jess had a short appearance.

It's easy to see what is going to happen with the island full of Amazons. Funny to see the bad acting and the gratuitous nudity. A turkey is the god they are talking too made from wood which replies...

No gore at all, there are a few killings but with no money affects at all. Just one to see for the juggs and hairy pussies. Also contains mail nudity from Wal Davis.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 4/5 Effects 0/5 Story 1/5 Comedy 0/5
