Did You Know?

Trivia

The French cargo ship aboard which Yoko travels to Marseille is the Frank Delmas (3rd of that name), built in 1975 and already a bit rusty when the film was shot. It was sold two years later to Liberia, re-sold to Panama in 1991, re-sold to Greece in 1998, and scrapped in 1999. See more »

Goofs

Although the cine-film at the start is meant to be of Bangkok, it is in fact somewhere in Japan as all the shop signs are in Japanese and NOT in Thai as they should be/are in Bangkok. See more »

Quotes

Tong: I suggest you continue your visit in the basement, where you may admire a woman wrestling. We have some private rooms with masseuses entirely at your service.

I'm warning you
10 October 2002 | by anthonycwhittleSee all my reviews

This is not your typical Jean rollin film so don't expect any nocturnal creatures with lecherous plans lurking in fact don't expect much from this piece of tripe, period. This film lacks all the ingredients that have made Jean rollin the auteur he is today. Even the usually stunning Francoise Blanchard looked awful with that 80's hairdo. All Jean rollin fans stay away and rent any other Rollin film from the 70's instead.
