Storyline

In medieval France, traveler Pygar tells he-man Karzan (Maciste in the French version) of his recent journey to a place called Antigua, and of its entire community of Amazons promising undreamed of sexual satisfaction to any man who comes upon them. More importantly, Pygar tells of a fortune in gold. Karzan/Maciste, is persuaded to undertake the journey in search of riches, unaware that Pygar is in collusion with the Amazon Queen to actually deliver Maciste as a slave stud to help rejuvenate the race. The expedition is ambushed, Maciste is placed into the Amazons' service, and Pygar, along with one of the Amazon women, Yuka, attempt to swipe a fortune in gold for themselves. Written by Artemis-9

ONE MOVIE, many titles.
28 February 2020 | by larryandersonSee all my reviews

I have only ever seen this movie in French under the tit;e YUKA but there are many other "releases" with different titles. So... YUKA LES EPLOITES EROTIQUE DE MACISTE DANS ATLANTIDE SEXES AU SOLEIL MACISTE CONTRO LA REINE DES AMAZONES LUSTFUL AMAZONES Les Gloutonnes AMAZONS FOR TWO ADVENTURERS and THE GOBBLERS which was the working title as the Amazons were very 'lustful". So, find a title and enjoy the movie. Larry Anderson
