A group of gangsters (Antonio de Cabo, Gisela Hahn, Werner Pochath,
Leonardo da Costa) kidnap international filmstar Laura (Ursula
Buchfellner), have their way with her & hold her for ransom. But her
boss is in no mood to pay the 6 million Dollars they want without a fight,
so he hires he-man Peter (Al Cliver) to free the girl for him.
The kidnappers seem to be a not all that clever bunch though, not only
do they shoot at Peter after hje has given them the money (they learn only
later that he has given them fakes), and let their hostage escape, they
have also picked an island infested by cannibals & their gut-munching
zombie god (Burt Altman) for the hostage exchange.
So when trying to recapture Laura & make another attempt to get the
money (this time the real money), they are picked out & killed by the
cannibals one by one.
Peter & his sidekick Chuck (Antonio Mayans) meanwhile have survived
the shoot-out, & have somehow made it to the kidnappers' yacht, where
they find a pretty, naked girl (Vicky Adams), who turns out to be another
of the kidnappers' hostages and who soon discovers a soft spot for Chuck
... soon Peter decides to continue the search for Laura alone, leaving the
two lovebirds on the yacht to you-know-what. In fact they are at it so
heavily that they fail to notice the zombie god entering their yacht until
it's much too late ...
On the island meanwhile the savages have captured Laura, prepared her
for sacrifice, stripped her & roped her to the sacrificial site. Peter
makes it there just in time, as the zombie god has already laid his dirty
hands on Laura. In a fight that ensues, Peter throws the zombie god off a
cliff & saves the girl ...
A weird little film that is somehow hard to just dismiss: On one hand
parts of the film are done in avant garde style: several sequences feature
a freely & frenetically moving camera, the beginning features a
parallel montage that's up there with the best of them, and several
unusual camera set-ups (Jess Franco's trademark) prove there has been a
thinking mind behind the film. On the other hand of course, the story of
the film is just rotten crap, the actors are mostly third-rate, the gore
& make-up effects do not convince for a second, & the dialogue is
nothing short of ridiculous (with choice lines like "why is everybody
shooting at us ?"), which all results in a weird mix of almost art
& insignificant trash.
Watch at your own risk, you might even like it (no guarantee), but
you'll probably hate yourself in the morning.
