According to director Just Jaeckin the final temple location of the film was actually shot on one stage with "roll-away" walls that were dressed and rearranged before each scene to give the appearance of many different rooms. See more »
Many of the closing-trap walls in the end sequence can be seen to stop just shy of the lens while the grinding-stone sound effects continue. See more »
[Gwendoline and Willard are grappling over a precipice]
Go on, let me fall! But it'll be your name I scream on the way down.
That's right, I belong to you: Body and Soul.
Wait, Gwendoline, I don't say that kind of thing! No! Gwendoline, I love you!

This movie is so much fun for so many reasons. It has action, ridiculous dialogue, rampant sexism, a dash of gore, and very funny performances. There are many schools of thought that might say Tawny Kitaen's performance was bad. I disagree. Her blend of innocence, energy, and complete lack of formal actor training are perfect for this movie. Much of the same goes for Brent Huff as the leading man. Watch this film with friends! Oh, and did I mention nudity? It's got that too. An excellent cinematic experience. Sequel, please.
