During the fight scene on the river between Willard's boat and the Chinamen's Junk, one of the subtitles shows a character's line and then follows it with the word "Bible?" which has no relevance to anything on the screen and seems to refer back to a line at the start of the film. See more »

For the original theatrical release, the BBFC required 3m 14s worth of cuts. For the video release, 2m 51s were cut. In 2005, all previous cuts were waived for the DVD release. See more »
The plot is pedestrian (Think "Wizard of Oz" meets "Story of O"), the acting no better than High School and the dubbing flat, but the visuals on this are very artistic. Not only the large amount of female nudity, but the sets and some of the camera angles, especially where Gwendolyn and Beth are being held back-to-back in the dungeon. There were more than a few scenes I wish would have been given more screen time. None of it is great cinema, but the artwork makes for great entertainment. The copy I saw seemed to have been hacked more than edited, perhaps to bring it in line with an "R" rating. I saw it on HBO shortly after it came out, and eagerly awaited a chance to purchase the video. I managed to get an ex-rental copy.
