Storyline

'Hell' is the name of the hero of the story. He's a prisoner of the women who now run the USA after a nuclear/biological war. Results of the war are that mutants have evolved, and the human race is in danger of extinction due to infertility. Hell is given the task of helping in the rescue of a group of fertile women from the harem of the mutant leader (resembling a frog). Hell cannot escape since he has a bomb attached to his private parts which will detonate if he strays more than a few hundred yards from his guard. Written by Rob Hartill

Quotes

Narrator: In the latter days of the 20th century, there arose a difference of opinion.
[a nuclear bomb suddenly detonates]
Narrator: The leading experts at the time believed a nuclear war would only involve the exchange of a few bombs. And then, the suitably horrified combatants would sit down at the peace table.
[Another explosion]
Narrator: They were wrong. In just 10 days, 10,000 years of human progress was virtually blown to dust.
Narrator: 10 years later, they tried again.

Love B films
28 May 1999 | by KierianSee all my reviews

I love bad films. This film is horrible. Fiendishly so. You get drawn in. It sucks up your will to stop watching. You sit there absolutely positive that you won't get more horrified. But heck it's got Rowdy Roddy Piper in it as the main star. That has to tell you something, though for the life of me I can't tell what. Please avert your eyes as our hero, Sam Hell(Rowdy), gets, for lack of a better word, seduced by every female in the post-apocalyptic world including a mutant frog woman. It's scary...I screamed in terror. And don't even get me started on the dance of the three snakes...I'll never look at a frog the same way again.
