Where's my medicine?
30 September 2018 | by clarkshullSee all my reviews

The best thing that can be said about this film is that it's not predictable. I kept watching just to see what ridiculous thing would happen next. When the bare- breasted huntresses on horseback appeared--one blowing a horn, I lost it. If anything, it makes for good conversation when talking with friends about weird movies.
