Trivia

Linda Blair did not want her fans to be deceived by what amounted to a cameo part by the actress in this film. She told the Los Angeles Times she had it stipulated in her contract that her name could not be above the movie title, nor in bigger print than anybody else's. The distributors however did feature Linda prominently in the ads and posters: dressed like Sheena (in high heels) and aiming a bazooka, Linda was clearly their drawing card for audiences. Additionally, the DVD release marketed Blair as the star of the film, billing her name above the title. See more »

Pretty Awful
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Women who have been captured and sold as slave labor to a South American emerald mine hatch a plan for revolution and revenge.

What this film consists of is footage from "Escape from Hell" (1980) and "Hotel Paradise" (also 1980) spliced together with a new wraparound featuring Linda Blair. The new wraparound is directed by Nicholas Beardsley... but who is Nicholas Beardsley?

Of course, the new version makes no sense because the characters do not match up. The fact it is even comprehensible at all is something of a miracle. (Apparently Charles Band had a hand in creating this, but I am not sure the details on that.)

The two films this came from were both directed by Edoardo Mulargia ("Don't Wait, Django... Shoot!") and written by Sergio Chiusi ("SS Experiment Love Camp"), so if any credit is deserved, it should go to them. But why not just watch their real films?

Sadly, the quality is terrible (even on the Shout Factory release) and I suspect there is not much that can be done about that because the footage clearly did not come from original negatives.
