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 »

Goofs

When this version was altered for American release, an error was made in the credits. They list Christina Lai as playing "Muriel" and Ajita Wilson as playing "Maria," when, according to the dialogue, it is the other way around. See more »

"Smooth as silk..."
22 July 1999 | by (Isle of Rhodes) – See all my reviews

"...You're going to remember this for a long time." And I have! Going back a few years, when I must have been so bored as to rent the most ridiculous, low budget films, this gem was etched in my mind. It's full of poorly done over-dubs. Hilarious! "I have some lovely letters and postcards from the outside world. How they ever found their way here is beyond me." Savage beach! A must not rent!
