The trailer and opening voice-over (which I suspect was tacked-on by Troma after the film's completion) of "A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell" try to sell this film as a campy comedy, but it's actually a rather serious futuristic / prehistoric adventure. The story and dialogue are minimal; the film is slow and often boring, but the stop-motion animation effects for the various monsters, although dated, still have a nostalgic charm (I'd take them over the clumsy CGI of contemporary B-movies any day of the week), and Linda Corwin is very sexy as the not-so-nymphoid barbarian - she has the lean, muscular physique of a track athlete (perhaps she was one), and she can fight too: in the movie's best scene, she chokes a mutant to death. Shortly after that, there is a fight between a deformed "good guy" and the main villain which is surprisingly long and exhausting. My total grade for this film is 4 stars + 2 extra stars for Linda Corwin = 6 out of 10.
