Storyline

The god Antiochus purchases a female slave for the gods Aphrodite and her brother Apollo. She is not only to perform the expected duties of a slave but is also to take part in the depraved sexual activities the two gods constantly engage in. What they don't know is that the slave is actually Sappho, the exiled Cretan queen. They buy another female slave, Katenga, and take them back to their home on Mount Olympus. When young Paris, who is in love with Sappho, hears about it, he shows up at Mount Olympus to try to rescue her, but fails and is taken prisoner by Aphrodite and Apollo, who use him in their perverted sexual games. Paris and Sappho seemingly go along with them, but are actually plotting their escape. Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Lame soft-core sludge
14 February 2017 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

The god Antiochus (a passable performance by Wayne Roberts) buys a female slave for the goddess Aphrodite (fetching brunette Antoinette Maynard) and her lover Apollo (hunky blonde surfer dude Walt Phillips). Said slave turns out to be exiled Cretan queen Sappho (ravishing redhead Luanne Roberts), who plots with her lover Paris (the hopelessly insipid Robin Courtney) to escape from Aphrodite and Apollo.

Flatly directed by Alain Patrick (who also wrote the blah script), with a meandering story that unfolds at a painfully plodding pace, a mushy tone, badly dubbed-in moaning and groaning during the dull soft-core sex scenes, a drippy score by John Bath, generally terrible acting, a clumsily staged sword fight, and a depressing bummer ending, this one proves to be a real chore to endure. Only the generous amount of tasty distaff nudity and the competent cinematography by the always reliable Gary Graver manage to make a favorable impression. A total clunker.
