According to Brett Piper, a distributor said that if he wanted his movies to succeed overseas, they should have all action and no dialogue. Piper made this movie and showed it to the same distributor, who said "Geez, I can't sell this thing, there's no dialogue!" See more »

The trailer and opening voice-over (which I suspect was tacked-on by Troma after the film's completion) of "A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell" try to sell this film as a campy comedy, but it's actually a rather serious futuristic / prehistoric adventure. The story and dialogue are minimal; the film is slow and often boring, but the stop-motion animation effects for the various monsters, although dated, still have a nostalgic charm (I'd take them over the clumsy CGI of contemporary B-movies any day of the week), and Linda Corwin is very sexy as the not-so-nymphoid barbarian - she has the lean, muscular physique of a track athlete (perhaps she was one), and she can fight too: in the movie's best scene, she chokes a mutant to death. Shortly after that, there is a fight between a deformed "good guy" and the main villain which is surprisingly long and exhausting. My total grade for this film is 4 stars + 2 extra stars for Linda Corwin = 6 out of 10.
