Set during the days of the Roman Empire. A simple village is raided by Roman troops, and most of the people are whisked off to be slaves or killed. Three women survive and set off to liberate their people. When they arrive at the Roman city, they team up with the local underground to seek vengeance and liberation of the slaves.
Directed with suitably lowbrow flair by Hector Olivera, this gleefully trashy low-budget sword and sorcery fantasy action exploitation romp certainly delivers the expected sleazy goods with a pleasing blend of energy and abundance: we’re got plenty of priceless dopey dialogue (all-time favorite line: “You’re much too beautiful a girl to let yourself be broken into food for the royal dogs”), a constant speedy pace, lots of gratuitously bared distaff skin on frequent display (cute’n’cuddly brunette hottie supreme Dawn Dunlap in particular looks absolutely yummy as Amethea’s sweet innocent younger sister Taramis), several exciting gory sword fights, a rousing score by James Horner and Chris Young, and a memorably disgusting bespectacled nerd torturer who uses a metal claw to paw one of Amethea’s breasts. Good junky fun.
